It's always the right time...........'s always the right time to do what's right
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

When I think of ethics, the first thought in my mind is Dr. Martin Luther King. So, I was both amused and disturbed by the's Code of Ethics: document. Who but a bunch of Project Managers could ever attempt to take an idea like ethics and make it into a 6 page document , the more they try to define it, the less they actually do. If you want to explain ethics, morality and courage all one needs to do is watch Dr. Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech - that is what should be linked from the PMI site. How do you ethically approach a project? a co-worker? any situation? If you need to rely on a 6 page document to define ethics then there are much deeper issues that need to be addressed. Ethics isn't what you do, ethics is what you are. I'd like to see a PMI Certified Manager create a gantt chart around that.
