We don’t need the help...we got it...we got it...oh crap, we’re in trouble and being overrun. Can you come help?”

Typically it all happens because every member of the project team, from the top down, wants to get as much out of the project as possible. Before you know it, you need a genius like John Nash in A Beautiful Mind to track and relate all the information you're managing within your projects. Requirements traceability can help.
