good question, good tips and good views.
There is a good HBR article helping us to understand how to become more ethical:
Ethic is beyond project management. Mainly because most of the organizations where projects are running have a code of ethics in place.
Some of these expectations amount to ethical standards, codified or not.
I would expect an MD working for a pharmaceutical company to adhere to both his professional ethics and those of the company and also any other constraints to his work e.g. imposed by regulations.
So I would expect a PM adhering to a professional code he signed (PMI or IPMA or else) AND also the codes he faces by his employer or a client as well as laws and regulations.
And openly sharing any CoI.
Certainly agree with you on that, but I don't want you to forget the fact that the ethics in question is in relation to project management, which a fact is a broad topic. I decided to bring out a few points to help aspiring managers along the way, thanks for the contribution will go through your article as well, as no knowledge is wasted.
Thank you for sharing
Adhering to Ethics in Project Management serves as a guidepost and framework for the Project Management Professionals that will help us in our daily decision making process and establishment of trusted relationship with our stakeholders. By adhering to the ethical standards, we are able to clearly navigate our projects towards success without personal conflicts of interest. Review of ethical standards at the beginning of each project during the kick-off meeting has worked for me in the past.
I carefully read your definition of ethics: "Ethics is about making the best possible decisions
concerning people, resources, and the environment"
Honestly, I was wondering what it is about: "making the best possible decisions".
Ethics is so elastic these days that I end up not knowing what it is to make the best possible decisions.
