- Henry David Thoreau said, "Aim above morality.…"Be not simply good, be good for something."…In the last two videos I discussed the mandatory…and aspirational ethical standards required of the members…of the Project Management Institute, or PMI.…How these ethical standards actually work…centers around your thought processes…and your reactions when you're faced with challenges…as a project manager.…So developing your own set of standards,…given your personal character, experience,…and the culture in which you work…is the best guide to ethical behavior.…
Now to help you along let me share questions…I ask myself when examining each of the four ethical values.…First, responsibility.…When I think of this ethical value…the following questions come to mind.…Are there experiences I have that I can convey…to someone on my team, or a senior manager?…Taking time away from project delivery…to share your experiences with others…can be time consuming,…however, when you have lessons learned…that can help your business…I think you need to consider that sharing…
