Project Management
Ethics plays a critical role in project management, but all too often, its
importance is overlooked. This benign neglect can result in serious
consequences to individuals and organizations, ranging from tarnished
reputations to civil and criminal liability.
Ethics and Project Management
demonstrates the importance of making ethics a key consideration in
managing projects and describes the impacts that occur when ethical
transgressions arise.
Providing the tools necessary for project managers to avoid an ethical
lapse that can put themselves and their organization at risk, this volume:
• Denes ethics and places it within the project management context
• Discusses the contents of the Project Management Institutes
code of ethics
• Enables project managers to recognize some of the trends
that precipitate ethical dilemmas on a project
• Demonstrates how ethical concerns permeate the entire
project life cycle
• Provides tips on establishing a governance protocol to
ensure ethical compliance
• Explores legal issues that arise from unethical behavior
• Examines how ethical concerns on a project can have global
implications, and how to operate in international settings with
cultural differences
Each chapter ends with a Getting Started Checklist, facilitating immediate
application of the concepts discussed and making it easy for project
managers to determine whether they are in compliance with ethical
standards. Providing a solid roadmap for the ethical health of a project,
this volume is essential reading for all those concerned with avoiding the
disastrous consequences of a cavalier approach to ethics.
