Most projects have some of this tendency as well, because very few
products are based on completely known technology in both functional
design and interaction design. Changes occur. Clients also demand
changes sometimes randomly.

In my experience, the average software company calls the TW when the
product is nearing completion, with completion usually meaning "five
minutes before the ship date," and asks them to WTFM.
