CODE OF CONDUCT
The primary mission of the Irish Continuous Improvement & Operational Excellence Forum (ICIOE) is to operate as a community of practice for continuous improvement and operational excellence professionals across the Ireland. The forum is dedicated to educating and improving the skills of its community members through the sharing of best practices, processes, methodologies, tools and technology with the ultimate aim of advancing the discipline across a wider base of industries around the Ireland.
All members must express their commitment to the ICIOE code of conduct when they join the ICIOE or its affiliates and to subsequent changes to the code which may be agreed from time to time.
Purpose of the code
The code of conduct sets out the elements of professional standards and ethical considerations which the ICIOE requires from members and shall be binding on all members of the ICIOE.
This code shall apply to all individuals and corporate bodies admitted to membership of the Irish Continuous Improvement & Operational Excellence Forum (hereinafter: the ICIOE), regardless of membership category. It shall furthermore apply to all aspects of their conduct which may affect the standing of the ICIOE and/or of the continuous improvement and operational excellence profession. The code sets out the elements of professional standards and ethical considerations which the ICIOE requires from members and shall be binding on all members of the ICIOE, whether at international or country level.
Both professionalism and ethics relate to proper, acceptable conduct. Professionalism is demonstrable awareness and application of competences and qualities covering knowledge, appropriate skills and behaviours. Ethics covers the conduct and moral principles recognised within the ICIOE as appropriate for the project portfolio management profession.
All members of the ICIOE shall be provided with a copy of the code upon joining the forum and are encouraged to read, understand and comply with all aspects of the code. Members holding ICIOE leadership, president or steering committee roles are required to agree in writing that they will comply with the ICIOE’s code of conduct.
