In the past, project management professionals (PMPs) were expected to adhere to the PMP Code of Conduct. Certified associates in project management (CAPMs) were expected to adhere to the CAPM Code of Conduct. And, members of PMI who were cre-dentialed as PMPs or CAPMs were also held to a separate ethical standard. It made more sense, of course, to create a blanket code of ethics for all members and certified candidates. So basically, everyone who is a PMI member, a CAPM, a PMP, or the latest PMI certification: the Program Manager Professional (PgMP), will have to agree to participate in this fresh PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. This code also applies to CAPM, PMP, and PgMP candidates.
NOTE Kudos to PMI on this decision! A simple solution is usually the best one. I'm thrilled with this new code, its detailed descriptions, and application for all PMI participants.
