But when the projectstarted and we began to review those requirements in depth and prepare a systemdesign, it became apparent that many requirements had been missed or were poorlydefined. Oops! So, right up front, early in the project, many more requirements had to be defined and others clarified. A major change order had to be processed, almost before the project commenced.Scope Creep can be deadly to a project. If our team had not been extremelydisciplined in executing a change management process, the project would have beendoomed to failure even before it began.What are effects of Scope Creep?What should be done to avoid this?
