Also: Iteration Review, Sprint Review

A meeting, held at the end of an iteration, at which the development team demonstrates working software and solicits feedback from the product owner, the customer, management, other development teams and other project stakeholders. In Scrum, this meeting is called a Sprint Review.

Mike Cohn describes the format of a Sprint Review in his introduction to Scrum:

“The sprint review meeting is intentionally kept very informal, typically with rules forbidding the use of PowerPoint slides and allowing no more than two hours of preparation time for the meeting. A sprint review meeting should not become a distraction or significant detour for the team; rather, it should be a natural result of the sprint.”

In Scrum, the meeting is time boxed to no more than 5% of development time, i.e., one hour at the end of a one-week sprint.

    It’s an hour per week, so that should read four hours at the end of a month long sprint, or one hour at the end of a week long sprint.

    Another good catch. Thanks!
