Working in a diverse, multicultural environment is fun—but also challenging. It requires an endless curiosity and acceptance of other cultures. If you manage this right, you will experience an enlightening journey.
The purpose of this webinar is to provide practical experiences from using the PMI Ethical Decision Making Framework (EDMF). The webinar begins with the background and genesis for the EDMF, and an overview of the tool and the steps required. Next, the webinar summarizes the research design, collection and analysis process. Participants were asked identify an ethical dilemma, preferably in a business environment, and use the steps in the tool to evaluate the alternatives. Analysis includes what the participants did well, and what they struggled with. In final parts of the webinar, there are recommendations for further use of the tool as a structured mechanism to stop and think before acting in a rash fashion. This tool, was developed by the PMI Ethics Member Advisory Group (EMAG) which acts as a product leader in creating tools and techniques to facilitate meeting the expectations of the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. This webinar is applicable to all those working in or related to the project management discipline. Objectives: – Explain background and intended use of Ethical Decision Making Framework (EDMF) – Describe recent EDMF effectiveness research based on student practical experiences – Summarize tool improvement and applicability recommendations

This workshop is based on a global survey (>3400), consisting of ten scenarios describing common ethical quandaries and the response that respondents made. Demographic Questions were also included. Participants will have the option to participate by using the polling feature to respond to these situations and observe the ways in which diversity influenced their decisions. Participants will understand the relationship between values, ethics and decision making and recognize the impact that ethnicity, culture and other sociodemographic characteristics have in decisions on ethical issues.
The topic of the webinar, close to the border of psychology, includes those ethical aspects that are tremendously influencing our projects and social life as well. The presenter, member of the PMI Ethics Member Advisory Group talks about the psychological distance between our actions and their impact, about how this distance explains some of our temptations (especially when we fell pray to them) and about the broken window concept applied in ethics (something that we encounter more and more nowadays). Ethics tools available for practitioners are presented and their possible practical results shortly described.

La agilidad se refiere a la capacidad de cambiar la posición del cuerpo sin perder el equilibrio. La agilidad cultural se convierte en una competencia que permite a los profesionales cambiar su estado de ánimo para desempeñarse con éxito en situaciones transculturales. Los profesionales globales que desarrollan conciencia cultural y agilidad serán los que ganen una ventaja competitiva en una economía global.
Agility refers to the ability to change the position of one's body without losing balance. Cultural agility then becomes a competency that enables professionals to change their state of mind to perform successfully in cross-cultural situations. Global professionals that develop cultural awareness and agility will be the ones who gain a competitive advantage in a global economy.
