Product terminology simply explained

Feature Creep

Feature creep refers to the phenomenon where a product keeps accumulating unnecessary features over time, often beyond the initial scope or requirements. It can lead to bloated software that is confusing and overwhelming for users. Imagine ordering a simple sandwich, but the chef keeps adding extra ingredients until it becomes a messy, unappetizing creation. In product management, it's essential to avoid feature creep by staying focused on the core value and needs of the users. Prioritizing features based on user feedback and maintaining a clear product roadmap are key to preventing feature creep.
