Before working on this discussion forum read Chapter 8 in your text, the articles by Nelson (Links to an external site.) (2007), Rowley (Links to an external site.) (2014), and Stachowiak (Links to an external site.) (2014), and review the Weekly Lecture. You have been working with the Cool Widgets training project over several weeks. Begin this discussion by explaining the concept of scope creep. Then identify two areas in your Cool Widgets’ plan where the potential for scope creep is high. Explain how you, as the Project Manager, might minimize the effects of scope creep on the training project and improve the potential for the success of your project. Support your findings by citing either the text or the PMBOK® Guide (PMI, 2017) and one additional scholarly, peer-reviewed or credible source. Your initial response should be at least 400 words. You are encouraged to post your required replies early during the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this discussion.
