Scope Creep

Scope Creep is the nightmare monster for all project managers whether they are freelance or corporate contractors.  We often hear on the news, the stories of big projects going over budget at the expense of the tax payers, but for small businesses like ours, it’s us that tend to suffer the financial consequence.  So what can we do?

 

Feel free to request the templates laura@thehiddenedge.co.uk. I am happy to share.

1. Recognise the three constraints on quality that every project faces

2. Apply the three constraints to the items in the Scoping Checklist

3. Use the Scoping Checklist to ensure you have all the bases covered in your pitch or tender

Please do share your experiences with these models in the comments below.  I am building a portfolio of small business case studies and would love to include examples of what has worked well for you.

PS – If you need further help then give me a call on 07962 626604 to arrange a Skype session with me.
