Maybe this method could work, but it would depend upon the perceived
fairness and competence the mentor exhibits. There remains an element of
subjectivity in this method. If you introduce such a system in an
environment with little trust (many companies nowadays show
characteristics of a political arena) that subjectivity could cause severe
problems by enhancing the distrust, dont you think so?
