PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct

Ethics – a system of values dealing with what is right and wrong and with moral duty and obligation. Webster

Four key values:

1. 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

2. Respect – our duty to show high regard for ourselves, others, and the resources entrusted to us. Resources entrusted to us may include people, money, reputation, thesafety of others, and natural or environmental resources

3. Fairness – our duty to make decisions and act impartially and objectively. Our conduct must be free from competing self interest, prejustice, and favourism

4. Honesty – our duty to understand the truth and act in a truthful manner both in our communications and in our conduct

These values all lead to one keystone – TRUST:

  • Trust secures relationships
  • Trust puts client’s mind at ease
  • Trust makes success sustainable
