How to Prevent Scope Creep

>>> Shared from Original Post iThemes

What happens when a client project moves into work activities and related costs that weren’t previously agreed upon? In the software and website development world, scope creep is the primary cause of projects running over time and budget.

In a recent webinar with project management guru Beth Livingston, we learned how to minimize scope creep by acknowledging and planning for change instead of penalizing the client for it. Beth covers the elements of a good change control process and how using a change budget allows you to ALWAYS—yes, ALWAYS—come in under budget.
