"Scope creep" is a frequent source of friction between technical teams and stakeholders, and can lead to a toxic environment without a balance between requests and changes. But what what we know as "scope creep" is actually the main reason agile software development first came into existence - so teams could adequately deal with the rapidly changing environments, opinions, and learnings vital to building successful software products. In this talk from Jessica Hall, Senior Director of Product Strategy & Design at 3Pillar Global, you will will learn how to manage ever-changing requirements, strategies for discerning true “hair-on-fire” needs from “nice-to-have-someday” asks, and recommendations for how to handle change requests.
