Quintessential Thought

We all know the Sprint Review is a time to invite stakeholders to interact with the product increment, requesting feedback to help the Product Owner steer future investments. But have you considered...inspecting the Sprint Review itself?

Sometimes we can focus our inspection and adaptation on the product and internal team processes while assuming we’re interacting in helpful ways with our stakeholders. That's why I introduced a retrospective of our Sprint Review at a client, and it was so valuable!

This quick step helps you gather valuable stakeholder feedback on the Sprint Review format, value, and areas for improvement. Imagine - discovering what truly resonates with them and how to make Reviews must-attend events!

Here are some questions to get you started:

  • How important are Sprint Reviews to you?

  • Do you feel your input is heard and acted upon?

  • What surprised you the most in our Sprint Reviews?

  • What has been working well in our Sprint Reviews?

  • What could be improved in our Sprint Reviews?

  • What could make these Reviews must-attend events?

  • Who else should be joining us?

By incorporating a retrospective of your Sprint Reviews, you'll not only elevate your product, but also forge a deeper connection with your stakeholders.
