How does this help your team?
Without a shadow of a doubt, the Sprint Review is simultaneously the most important and misunderstood event in Scrum. Many of the Scrum Teams we meet struggle to leverage this event for its intended. We designed this string to help your team explore the purpose of the Sprint Review and the significant role it plays in gathering real feedback from real stakeholders. With this string, you can bust the myth that the Sprint Review is primarily an opportunity to "demo" the increment to stakeholders. Let's discover what the Sprint Review really is about!
