English term or phrase: scope creep
Gestione aziendale - presentazione su power point (quindi contesto scarso)
si trova in una lista di cattivi comportamenti da correggere per migliorare la gestione dei progetti di lavoro. Credo voglia dire "lecchinaggio", ma la terminologia usata e' molto tecnica e non so come renderlo in italiano
grazie

Explanation:
Ecco cosa ho trovato:

Lo scope creep è una distorsione tipica del mercato dei software. Si
verifica quando i programmatori "gonfiano" le applicazioni con funzioni non
necessarie e non richieste dal cliente allo scopo di allungare i
tempi di consegna e/o di far lievitare il costo.

ave you ever had the feeling that your outsourced tech project would never stop growing? Have you ever felt like it'll never be finished? Your project may be suffering from "scope creep."
"Scope creep" is an insidious growth or change in your project which happens while you're working on your project. It typically involves adding or modifying features as a project evolves. It can increase costs, require time-consuming rework, delay your launch date and fray tempers.
Scope creep is bad enough when it happens on a purely in-house project. The worst case scenario is that you'll have co-workers at each other's throats. (Of course, depending upon whom is at whose throat, you may find it to be good spectator sport.) When it happens on an outsourced project -- particularly one with a fixed price -- you could be looking at an ugly legal dispute.
Define Your Project
Scope creep can occur with fixed price deals as well as contracts calling for payment on an hourly fee basis.
With an hourly fee deal, ugliness can rear its head if the project goes significantly over budget. The customer will often feel like the vendor low-balled them on the budget. The seller of the services will typically contend that as the project developed, the customer wanted more than she originally requested -- scope creep.
With a fixed-price contract, scope creep can be an even uglier situation. Here, you may have a customer arguing that the fixed price includes something that the other side thinks is outside of the scope of the fixed price.

invasione


Explanation:
mi viene da pensare 'scope widening'

si tratta forse del comportamento di certe persone 'arriviste' che tendono a prendere molto piu' spazio di quanto competerebbe loro

in tal caso 'allargamento' ma soprattutto 'invasione' potrebbe essere una traduzione sintetica

Alla luce di quanto sopra, userei qualcosa come "gonfiamento", "lievitazione"
