How to deal with Score Creep?
Score creep refers to a change that’s uncontrolled and added without checking its impact on scope, time, cost, etc.
To handle it, here’s what needs to be done:
Close monitoring of work being done on a day-to-day basis.
Understanding and communicating the vision to the team and ensuring they’re aligned.
Capturing, reviewing the project requirements regularly (against what is delivered), to emphasize to the team & customer about the requirements signed off.
Ensuring that any changes introduced go through change control & are implemented based on the approval for change request.
Avoid gold plating.
