How to Combat Project Scope Creep

Scope creep happens when a project’s scope is changed or additional requirements are implemented after the start of a project, and you don’t really have any control over it. Although you know that changes are likely to occur at some point during any project, the lack of control that comes with scope creep can be very stressful.

More specifically, scope creep occurs when changes to a project haven’t been authorized, and when the effects of those changes haven’t been addressed. Worse yet, you’re still required to achieve the project’s goals with the same schedule, budget, and resources that you had before the changes were made.

All of this might mean that you’re unable to meet the original authorized aspects of your project on time, and it might cause the project to fail unless you know how to tackle scope creep.
