Hank is a professional scope creeper. Hank is very successful at making projects late. He causes confusion and frustration everywhere he goes.
He’s been selected as the #1 reason why projects are delayed 5 years straight. The secret to his success is hidden in his title, “Scope Creeper”.
Hank just can’t stand seeing a team working and finishing tasks on time.
He waits for them to create their project schedule. And when they begin working on their project, that’s when he starts sabotaging it.
The reason why Hank is so good at project disruption is because he slips under the radar. He adds a small feature here, a minor change there, and before you know it, the project is out of control.
But don’t worry, there are effective ways to fight Hank and prevent scope creep.
One basic way is simply to say “No!” to change requests when the project is in development. But it’s not always possible to just say no because, sometimes, changes to the project are necessary.
In that case, you must find a way to keep Hank the Scope Creeper in check so that he can’t run amok and ruin your project. The best way to do this is to make sure that change requests go through a well-defined process that updates the project plan accordingly and keeps everything under control.
We explain how to do that in more detail in our book “The Project Management Formula – The 5 Steps to Complete Your Project on Time”, written by Elementool’s Founder & CEO Mr. Yaron Sinai.
