    What is Sprint Review?
    ● Sprint Review is one of the official meetings in Agile to inspect outcomes
    and determine future adaptation at the end of Sprint.
    ● The development team demonstrates their achievements and gets
    feedback from stakeholders.
    ● Sprint Review is different from Sprint Retrospective because Sprint
    Retrospective discusses future improvements.

    Why is Sprint Review Important?
    ● Demonstrating outcomes and getting feedback from customers and
    stakeholders to avoid developing unwanted products or features, which is
    one of the most common problems in software development.
    ● Reviewing and adapting what to do next because the business
    environment and customers’ expectations rapidly change due to
    globalization and technologies.
    ● Revising the Product Backlog as it will be an input for the upcoming Sprint
    Planning.

    Sprint Goal(s) and Sprint Backlogs
    Sprint Goal(s)
    Sprint Goal(s) describes why Sprint is important for
    the product. It must align with the product vision.
    Sprint Goal(s) is ideally one but can be multiple if it
    suits your team.
    Sprint Backlogs
    Sprint Backlogs are selected Product Backlog Items
    based on Sprint Goal(s) and are expected to
    complete by the end of Sprint. They are the actual
    scope of the development team to work.

    Definition of Done
    ● The second input is the Definition of Done (DoD) which clarifies the
    standard rule of the meaning of the completion in the team.
    ● DoD prevents a common problem in software development that the
    development team cannot distinguish which Product Backlog Items are
    completed because everyone has a different understanding of completion.
    ● Acceptance Criteria, which represent detailed requirements and
    acceptance tests, are commonly used as part of DoD.

    Increments
    ● Increments are completed Product Backlog Items that are ready to be released
    anytime.
    ● The meaning of completion is to meet the Definition of Done.
    ● The development team is expected to delivery Increments by the end of Sprint
    and demonstrate during Sprint Review.

    Facilitation Order
    1. First, the Scrum Master explains the purpose and agenda of Sprint Review so all
    participants see the same direction.
    2. Secondly, the Product Owner or Developers demonstrate or explain their
    outcomes based on Sprint Goal(s) and Sprint Backlogs.
    3. At the end of Sprint Review, the Scrum Master recapitulates and confirms the
    discussion and outputs. Outputs of Sprint Review are critical for the next Sprint
    Planning for correct adaptation.

    How the Scrum Master Behaves
    As the facilitator, the Scrum Master should
    ● Remain neutral position, not decision-maker or impartial.
    ● Practice active listening.
    ● Ask powerful questions.
    ● Invest effort in maintaining a positive atmosphere.

    Output
    ● Adapted Product Backlog is the most important output as it becomes
    the input for the next Sprint.
    ● However, outputs are not limited to adapted Product Backlog. For
    example, meeting minute is commonly made for everyone’s review.
    The Scrum Master needs to adjust based on the context of a project.

    Bottom Line
    ● Sprint Review is an opportunity for the development team to demonstrate their
    achievements and get feedback from stakeholders.
    ● Sprint Review is important to prevent the most common software development problem:
    the development team develops unwanted products or features.
    ● For the 10x more effective Sprint Review, the development team prepares four elements:
    Sprint Goal(s), Sprint Backlogs, the Definition of Done, and Increments.
    ● During the Sprint Review, the Scrum Master should remain neutral, practice active listening,
    ask powerful questions, and invest effort in maintaining a positive atmosphere.
    ● The most important output is the adapted Product Backlog, as it becomes an input for the
    next Sprint. However, outputs are not limited to it. For example, meeting minute is often
    made for review.
