Definition of Sprint Review
The Sprint Review consists of a Product Review and a Progress Review, and may consist of other Reviews as well. These reviews often require different participants, so the Sprint Review is often a series of separate Reviews.
The purpose of the Product Review is to get meaningful feedback from the Stakeholders about the Team’s Work Results (Product). This Review is often called the Sprint Review, and is the most important in Scrum, as without this feedback Scrum won’t work. For this reason, it is very important to get the right Stakeholders into the room for the Product Review.
If necessary, the Release Goals, Release Strategy, and Backlog are updated as part of the Review (or soon thereafter), taking into account the Review and any changes in business reality the Stakeholders may have. When Projects or Organizations are small they can rely on intuitive reasoning to determine what the right direction is; however, as they get bigger they may see a need for more sophisticated techniques (including metrics, perhaps) to help them discover what to do next. After the Product Review, the Team has an internal Retrospective to analyze its performance and practices.
