EconStor Conference Papers from ZBW - Leibniz Information Centre for Economics

Abstract: The paper is a call for project practitioners of the future to educate their ethical perception, and for organizations to provide an appropriate environment which enables formation of ethical sensitivity. This theoretical study uses as method the systematic literature review to show that digital transformation impacts the ethical decision-making of project leaders of the future in the same way it contributes to the transformation of their profiles, the methods applied in their daily performance and the manner they conduct their projects. Teaching digital ethics, building digital skills, exercising practical application of ethical decision-making should be prioritized in future project management curricula by business and educational organizations.
