Feb. 26, 2013 - PRLog -- La Harba, CA, February 1 /ProjectManager/ -- There are dark days and there are glorious ones in the field of management. Sometimes Project managers face their own scope creeps and unknowingly leave is as it is until one day, the project they’re working on is left in a corner, unmanaged.

What are Scope Creeps?

The best way to ask this is by “Who are the scope creeps?” Scope creeps are those people whom a project manager are attached to the most, those who brings him to lunch, buys him donuts and are his best buddies. Project manager Ltd. Formulated 7 ways to manage scope creeps and put the balance back in line.

First, it is important to know who the scope creeps are and define the baseline what the scope is before the project is launched

Next is to know what to do with the possible changes within the project, whether it will be launched or put on hold, when and where the project starts.

Scheduling the project plan is one of the most important things to take not on. Never create imaginary due dates which are not feasible. Re baseline the projects and know whether they are do able or not and at the least, there should be a record to keep track of the number of failed projects.

Fourth is to request additional resources, now that the project has been re baselined and fund approved.  Going back in statistics, changes always happen, it is better to have something extra for emergency reasons since approval of funds usually takes time.

Number 5 is to watch for signs; like the project being so quiet or anything that may give hints about the status of the project.

Sixth is to set priorities and lastly, it is not to fall into the traps of scope creeps. Scope creeps always use phrases like “This will not take long” or “this will be easy” most scope creeps are those who haven’t done such things before and getting into these traps, makes a project fail up to a possibility of 75 percent
