For this assignment, you will create a presentation for your peers around an ethical issue faced in project management, how it was handled, your analysis of how it was handled, and alternate recommendations for how it could be handled.
This assignment is directly linked to the following key learning outcomes from the course syllabus:
Assess and develop a position on a question of civic and global significance in the field of project management, taking into account both scholarship and published positions and narratives of relevant interest groups.
In addition to these key learning outcomes, you will also have the opportunity to evidence the following skills through completing this assignment:
For this assignment, you will select and analyze an ethics in project management dilemma. Consider the following articles that review an ethical dilemma. To ensure that no one reviews the same article, please post your article name in the DB Post – Weeks 5-6 – Ethics Presentation. Review those who have posted before you to ensure your article has not already been selected.
Your deliverable is a presentation highlighting your analysis – include detailed text notes that if read aloud would be as insightful as is spoken that will:
Summarize the ethical situation/issue/decision to be made – why it is one – problems it creates for project and benefits in resolving
Analyze the action taken by the PM (Strengths and potential issue created)
Provide an alternate strategy (Plan)
Strengths and Possible Risks with that strategy (Plan)
Actions in Implementing (Do)
How to know if it resolved the ethical situation (Starting to Check)
Other actions to consider if not effective (Act)
Proactive actions to take on a new project to prevent this situation – how this could be implemented within an Ethics Policy on Project
Connect in a component of the PMI Code of Ethics/General statement on why a code of ethics is important in PM
As a conclusion to your presentation, consider how this case may influence your team’s approach to your Ethics policy.
