What do you call a constant increase in the scope of the project?

I remember there was an exact term to define the following: an increase in the scope of the project due to new additions by the client. I know about a scope creep, but this is not the term I'm looking for.

Please help!

Actually it is scope creep. For some reason I think you mean Scope Inflation, which has nothing to do with the client. Scope inflation happens when your team members or you (as the Project Manager) start adding features to the project that are not in the original scope.

Scope creep, on the other hand, is processing all client's changes immediately, without following a process (which is the change control).

Hope that helps!
