Scope Creep: Identifying and Reducing a Huge Project Management Pitfall
ATTENDEES QUALIFY FOR A CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION.
All AE consulting firms want their projects to be as profitable as possible; however, most will identify their biggest project management pitfall as: doing work outside of the scope (aka scope creep), which greatly reduces profits. Depending on the size of your firm, scope creep could cost you thousands, or even millions, of dollars annually.
While this is a common and debilitating challenge that most firms face, the reality is that by installing a few simple processes you can greatly reduce scope creep on your projects. These strategies should be learned and implemented by every project professional as early on as possible in their careers.
In this session, participants will learn how to:
- Ensure the project scope is clear to all team members
- Identify scope creep as early as possible
- Notify clients of work to be done outside of the scope
- Approach a client in an “extra-work” situation
