Changes are inevitable in business and in life. And every project will face moments when you need to rethink what you’re building and potentially adjust your process. Scope creep happens when you do more work than expected without increasing the project budget. The team talks all about past experiences, lessons learned, and solutions we've created to help eliminate scope creep from happening in the first place! Topics include: • Setting yourself up for success, at the very beginning. • Crafting your agreement and expectations upfront. • Setting boundaries and clarifying the requests. • When to be firm, when to be flexible. In Industry news, we cover a very specific "scam" both Mikelle and Nick have experienced! Plus, we preview our upcoming Adobe Max content! Stay tuned for future episodes!
