Week 6: Ethics and Project Portfolio Management - Discussion
Ethical Behavior (graded)
Review the PMP "Professional Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct" and this week’s reading in the textbook.Let's start with addressing the two scenarios below1. While working on an external project, your customer asks you to perform some additional tasks that are notincluded in the formal contract. What should you do?2. You are managing an internal R & D project. The initial test results are very poor. You are afraid your management might cancel the project, and this could reflect poorly upon you. Verification testing could bedone quickly and inexpensively. What should you do?Pick a question to answer or comment on your classmates' comments. These questions generate a great deal of discussion in the classroom. I'll be interested to see how we do here!

human) with care and consideration, listening to other opinions and points of view, notbeing abusive towards others, and handling conflict calmly.
A PM should be honest in communication and in actions; strive to understandand know the truth; create a safe environment that encourages sharing good and badnews.
A PM should treat all people equal regardless of sex, age, race, religion, and soon. Decisions made should be impartially, granting equal access to information (as isappropriate), granting equal opportunities, and avoiding conflicts of interest.

i) Responsibility- our duty to take ownership for the decisions we make or fail to make,the actions we take or fail to take,and the consequences that result.ii) Respect - our duty to show a high regard for ourselves,others, and the resources entrusted to us. Resources entrusted tous may include people, money, reputation, the safety of others, and natural or environmentalresources.iii) Fairness- our duty to make decisions and act impartially and objectively. Our conduct must be free fromcompeting self interest, prejudice, and favoritism.iv)Honesty- our duty to understand the truth and act in a truthful manner both in our communications and in our conduct.Each section includes both aspirational and mandatory standards. Aspirational - describe the standard we strive to uphold as practitioners.Mandatory - establish firm requirements and sometimes limit or prohibit practitioner behavior.

The first of which is the responsibility of the projectmanager and organization. This area deals with the entity's ability to take ownership of the decisions that are made,and those that they do not make accompanied with the consequences of those decisions. The second area of concern according to PMI is respect. When looking at respect, PMI infers this to mean the duty to exhibit a high levelof regard for others, resources used for the projects, and oneself. Resources itself can mean not only the materialscan budget of the project, but the people working on the project as well. Third is the issue of fairness. This is bydefinition having the ability to act impartially in the decisions that are made during the course of the project. A projectmanager must remain objective in all aspects of their work. Lastly, PMI stresses honesty as very important. Theydefine this as the project manager's ability to tell the truth, understand the meaning of such and act in good faith in allaspects of their activities.
