Adhering to the Honesty Requirements

There are just two mandatory standards for honesty in the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct:

• Do not engage in or condone behavior that is designed to mislead others; this includes, but is not limited to:

• Creating misleading statements

• Creating false statements

• Stating half-truths

• Providing information that is out of context

• Withholding information that, if known, would render our statements false

• Do not engage in dishonest behavior with the intention of personal gain at the expense of others.

Basically, as project managers, we don't lie. We are required, according to the code, to tell the truth, regardless of the impact it may have on us, our project team, or our projects. How many project managers do you know who are living by this requirement already?
