Scope Creep

   

Definition: Scope Creep is an undesirable project phenomenon in which excessive, ongoing, informal additions and/or changes in requirements are allowed without a proper process leading to a continuous or uncontrolled growth of a project's scope at any point after the project has begun.

It happens when the project scope grows indefinitely and the team is incapable of managing it. This growth will likely cause problems with the time allotted for the project and/or with the budget assigned to it.
