Small Sins Allowed in Project Management

Many times, projects face ethical issues where policies or agreements are abandoned. Furthermore, in several cases, Project Managers have to take actions to accommodate various stakeholders.

The line between what is morally wrong or right is really thin and varies depending on where in the organisation we are acting.

In this workshop, Alicia Medina will present the essence of the book “Small Sins Allowedand theLine of Impunity”that she co-authored with Dr. Eduardo Lopez from Belmont University (Nashville-USA) where the two concepts are presented and explained in relation to different project related ethical issues. The project at the new Karolinska Institutet (which is considered as a typical example of failure in project management based on ethical issues) is one of the examples that will be discuses.

In the workshop, following the initial presentation, the participants will have the opportunity of an open discussion where they can share their ethical dilemmas. These dilemmas will be discussed and analysed in the groups.

Small Sins Allowedis defined as a subjective mental model that establishes the level of a certain behaviors above which adherence to ethical standards is expected.

TheLine of Impunityrefers to the idea that certain ranks or positions in the hierarchy entitle prerogatives or advantages, and that the power granted at those levels transcends the limits of control or law enforcement.

A project as the new Karolinska Institutet is a typical example of failure in project management based on ethical issues. Other cases are that will be discussed are vendor selection and project staffing projects.
