Code of Ethics and Prof Conduct

Postby Sud Wed Aug 13, 2014 7:06 pm

You are acquiring a project team, and as part of that process you must interview new project managers for
your company. One of the candidates claims to be a PMP certified project manager, but you discover that she has
never taken the PMP exam. What is the BEST way to handle this situation?
A. Consult the Human Resource Management plan to see if PMP certification is a resource requirement.
B. Report the person to your manager.
C. Report the person to PMI.
D. Call the police.


Doubt-Should PM first report this internally and follow the process? How can he directly approach PMI? Also as per PMI Code of Conduct and Prf ethics says that any complaint to PMI should be accompanied with proofs. So should not PM connect with the manager in this regard. PM is not violating any code of conduct by connecting with manager.

for ethics question we have to be idealistic..

PMP is given by PMI so letting manager know will not help. And you are saying in question that person has not given test ever. PMI can verify on it and rather you can search online with name and do a quick check as proof. Informing PMI is not necessarily a fraud case, it can be a case of doubt which PMI can check and confirm
