I pride myself in the fact that I’m a very honest and hard working manager. I define the Huether Triple Constraint as Passion, Commitment, and Skill. I’m passionate about what I do, I’m committed to the organizations I work for, and I rely on my skills and the skills of others to be successful.
As part of commitment, ethics and professional conduct should always be considered. One of the questions I always ask myself before making a leadership decision is “Is this good for the project and our organization?” No, I don’t work for Initech and this isn’t Office Space. This is a valid question and there will be several questions on the exam that deal with ethics and professional conduct.
I recommend reading the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.
Even if you don’t take the PMP, every good project manager will learn from it.
