people creep

Resource plans change in response to significant change or in reaction to a failure to meet an agreed plan. Plan also change due to ‘people creep’.
People creep happens when a team gets comfortable with the work that they have to do, and with the number of people in the team & by just starting to believe that they need more. When teams don’t want to leave their comfort zone, and where in a large team, there is a feeling that adding one more person can’t break the bank. It is a cultural change that can happen in large teams.
Feature Creep is a well known risk, People Creep is less known but as a phenomena has an impact on project delivery and budgets.
