Lesson #4: Scope Creep
If you are a project manager you know that avoid scope creep will definitely increase the chance of delivering the project on time and budget. 1) Make a clear schedule to outline every step of the project. 2) Make sure that everyone is on the same page about the requirements. 3) Determine project goals (cost, schedule, quality) through a systematic process with proper planning and understanding of the customer needs. 4) Make realistic assumptions about resource availability and deadlines to achieve quality results. As, there is no 100% anti-scope-creep solution but documenting what is happening and communicating challenges to stakeholders, team, and management in advance might help. 5) Use Gantt charts for better project planning and tracking and stay on top of project plans.
