Describe the causes of scopre creep and ways to manage it.
In order to describe the causes of scope creep, I feel it is important to know what scope is. In this case, we are looking at the project scope. A project scope “sets the stage for developing a detailed project plan”. Mainly focusing on the end result of a project. So back to describing scope creep, A scope creep is when a project scope expands over time. The main causes for this mentioned in the book are poor requirement analysis, not involving users early enough, underestimating project complexity, lack of change control, and gold plating. As far as what to do in order to manage, the best solution I found in the textbook is to use Agile project management because the “scope is assumed to evolve rather than be prescribed.”
