Hi,

if you search for scope creep here on pm.com or with google you will find a ton of material regarding this topic.

in short:
- clear and precise defined scope and project charter
- clear defined and detailed documented requirements
- clear defined and consequent used integrated change control process just from the beginning of the project
- well understanding of the project management processes and the need of ICC among all the stakeholders
- a good team

Regards,

Markus

Well....that pretty much sums it up.

I have to reiterate scope creep is controlled through those things but communication is essential to control it.
By understanding that you, as project manager, do not take decision about changes in your project, mainly regarding scope. That´s all. Simple to state but hard to implement.

Love can sweep you off your feet and carry you along in a way you've never known before. But the ride always ends, and you end up feeling lonely and bitter. Wait. It's not love I'm describing. I'm thinking of a monorail.
