The Role of Ethics in Project Management

Do the right thing but make sure you do it on time, under budget, and within scope, all the while maintaining your professional integrity in a constantly evolving global business environment. How do project managers do it, given that most ethical dilemmas are not black and white and usually require diligent deliberation? Keeping with their vision of establishing project management as a professional industry, the project management community and the Project Management Institute (PMI®) have established standards of ethics to help members to navigate the sometimes murky waters of ethical issues. In this course, learners will be given an overview of the role of ethics in project management. Specifically, learners will be introduced to the Project Management Institute (PMI®) Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. These are standards that are supported by values identified by practitioners around the world as essential to ensure the integrity of the project management profession. In addition, the course covers the consequences of unethical choices and behavior, including their far-reaching impact on the project management community, the global business community, and society. It provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition, published by PMI®, Inc., 2013. Copyright and all rights reserved.

Core PMI® Values and Ethical Standards

As a project manager, you will inevitably be called upon to address ethical dilemmas. The type and complexity of these dilemmas can vary significantly from balancing the competing interests of stakeholders to adhering to conflicting legal, multi-cultural, and multi-national rules, regulations, and requirements. Addressing these issues is much more complex than simply deciding what is right and what is wrong. In an increasingly global network, project managers must proactively seek to understand cultural diversity, and how to work successfully with multi-national teams. Sensitivity to other groups, their social customs, and their means of doing business is key to success. Often, project managers will need to weigh all competing interests fairly and objectively in order to make the ethical decision that will have the most far-reaching benefits. In this course, learners will explore the values underlying ethical decisions and behaviors as outlined in the PMI® Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. For each value, learners will be introduced to the integrity aspired to, as well as the mandatory conduct demanded of project managers to effectively manage projects and further promote project management as a profession. Topics covered include the behaviors that align with the core values of responsibility, respect, honesty, and fairness; how to integrate ethics into your project environments; and how to resolve ethical dilemmas. The course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam.

Introduction to Program Management

The relationship between program and project management can be thought of in terms of climbing a ladder. Program management is the subsequent rung after project management. For example, project managers regularly balance many projects with varying deadlines and responsibilities – all at the same time. In a similar way, program managers must balance multiple programs, consisting of many different projects. When in a program management environment, there is an entirely new set of skills and knowledge a program manager must possess in order to be successful in this role. This course provides an introduction to program management and the roles and responsibilities required of the program manager. Specifically, learners will be introduced to the importance of program management and the value of a program manager to the success of an organization; the differences between project, program, and portfolio management, and the interactions among them. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date program management information, so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist the learner in initial preparation for the PMI® Program Management certification exam. This course is aligned with The Standard for Program Management – Second Edition, published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®), Inc., 2008. Copyright and all rights reserved.

Program Life Cycle and Benefits Management

Regardless of the industry, programs and program management help organizations effectively implement corporate strategies. To achieve the planned benefits and outcomes of your program, you need to manage its benefits across its life cycle. This life cycle will vary, depending on the type of program. However, if you understand the general phases in the program life cycle, you can adapt the life cycle model and program benefits to satisfy the strategic goals that your program aims to meet. This course describes the program life cycle, including why it's important to organize programs into phases, the key distinctions between program and project life cycles, and how program benefits and governance are managed across the life cycle. Also covered are the activities carried out in each phase of the program life cycle, with examples from different program scenarios. With a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date program management information, learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. The course will assist the learner in initial preparation for the PMI® Program Management certification exam.
