What is Schedule Creep


 Schedule Creep is an informal term (a buzzword) which can be understood in two common ways: 

  • A situation when the deadline of a project gets slowly postponed further out, getting later and later than it was initially planned. Can be a result of the project scope creep adding requirements and new tasks to the project, hence its schedule begins to grow. Another possible reason is that poor project planning was initially performed (a project has been started without having a well-elaborated plan for the work to be completed), so the project schedule appears unreasonable and its real shape reveals bit by bit only along with performance of the practical work. As a result of schedule creep, a project can face very serious delay, or even a complete failure.
  • When the working hours of a professional (usually used among attorneys) who is employed on a part-time basis (part-time schedule), slowly creep up towards full time schedule, so in a result an employee has working hours which are close to a full-time workload, but this employee is still compensated at a part-time pay.
