Course Overview
(Music playing) Hi everyone. My name is Lars Klint, and welcome to my course on Managing Scope Creep. I'm a freelance solution architect at larsklint. com, Microsoft MVP, international speaker, HoloLens developer, and purveyor of quality software. I've been building software systems in all sorts of different project types from tiny websites to massive telecommunication systems in the past 20 years. Scope creep is one of the most damaging things to happen to any project, but often it sneaks in on a project, or creeps, hence the name. In this course, you'll not only get the tools to combat scope creep, but also understand the cause and effect. You will learn what scope creep is and how it affects projects, find out about the real world cost of scope creep and how it affects both project teams, as well as companies. Learn about the indicators of scope creep and learn the early warning signs; poor change control, communication, and weak project management are some of the areas we will look at. Once you understand what it is and how it happens, we can then delve into how you can avoid, manage, and even reverse scope creep. There are lots of tools and methods for you to keep in your toolbox for scope creep combat. This course is designed to make you both aware and much better equipped when starting or continuing any kind of project. It will save you both time and money. I hope you will join me in taking a step to getting rid of failed projects and shape a path of success with the Managing Scope Creep course at Pluralsight.
