Chapter 21: Sprint Review

Near the end of the sprint, the team conducts two important inspect-and-adapt activities: the sprint review and the sprint retrospective. The sprint review focuses on the product itself. The sprint retrospective, on the other hand, looks at the process the team is using to build the product.

This chapter describes the sprint review—its purpose, its participants, and the work required to make it happen. I conclude by addressing a few common sprint review issues.
