Write a 200- to 300-word response to the following DB question.
Describe a situation in which you were involved with a project where the scope increased (called scope creep) until the project went over time and over budget. What consequences occurred because of this scope creep? How did it affect the project?
If you have not had experience with project management, describe how scope creep can occur within a project and how you might manage scope creep should it ever arise.
Citing credible reference materials, including your course textbook(s), is highly recommended when providing your response.

Your boss has just come to you with a great idea. He wants to develop a three-day camping trip that focuses on team building and conflict resolution. Other than that goal, he really does not provide any details. Based on the ambiguity of the request, what do you need to consider when it comes to the selection process and scope management of your new project?
