What we can learn from honesty with the Caltech Honor Code
In this episode, Ricardo discusses a surprising tradition of one of the most respected educational institutions in the world, the Caltech (Californian Institute of Technology). At Caltech, students usually take their exams home, in a clear demonstration of the level of confidence and responsibility given to students by themselves, their professors, and the institution.
Ricardo also makes some reflections about what we can learn from this example to apply to how we conduct and report our work, and to what extent each of us is committed to truth and honesty in assessing deadlines, budgets, risks, and even results of our projects. A point to be reflected by all.
