PMI Member and Non-Member Volunteers and Employees
A conflict of interest is a situation that arises when a project management practitioner, PMI volunteer or employee is faced with making a decision of doing some act that will benefit the practitioner or another person or organization to which the practitioner, volunteer or employee owes a duty of loyalty and at the same time will harm another person or organization to which the practitioner owes a similar duty of loyalty. The only way practitioners, volunteers and employees can resolve conflicting duties is to disclose the conflict to those affected and allow them to make the decision about how the practitioner, volunteer or employee should proceed.
