Today: 24-Nov-2008: Scope creep

Category: today

This week marks the start of my election systems into production and inevitably some scope creep. As the system architect commented that the project never really had any scope. The actual users of the system have different expectations and requirements than we have encountered so far. The main difference is the request for a very simple direct search system instead of the very flexible system that I had put into the system. A quick modification locally resolved the issue for them and when I returned to my desk I altered the system to handle both the search requirements that they were interested in whilst also providing the more advanced search as an option. This and other smaller changes took up the majority of my day in addition to a bit of training and on site monitoring.
