Sprint Review - [Scrum Basics 2019] + FREE Cheat Sheet

Episode 136 - 01 Jan 0001

Dummy body

We’re dissecting Scrum to take a look at it piece by piece

Today it’s the turn of the Sprint Review.

TLDR: It’s NOT JUST A DEMO!

Empirical process control. Empiricism

Ring any bells?

Empiricism is the thing on whichScrum is founded.

It says so right in the Scrum guide

Here’s the definition:

“Empiricism asserts that knowledge comes from experience and making decisions based on what is known.”

It also goes on to talk about the 3 pillars of Empiricism:

Transparency, Inspection and Adaptation.

And the Sprint Review is all about those last two pillars

At the end of every Sprint, we inspect… and we adapt.

What do we inspect and what gets adapted?

Simplistically, the INCREMENT is inspected, and the PRODUCT BACKLOG is adapted.
