Creating Sprint Reviews that Attract, Engage, and Enlighten your ‘Customers’
Are you suffering from organizational disinterest in what your agile teams are delivering? Are your Product Owners unavailable or distracted? Does everyone question the value and flow of what your teams are working on? Are your sprint reviews a ho-hum experience with varying and low attendance?
If you answered yes to any of the above, your agile teams are in trouble and you need to attend this session.
Join experienced agile coach Bob Galen to explore real-world patterns for how to increase the interest, energy, and value of your Sprint Reviews. First we’ll explain the importance of proper preparation, keys to dry runs, and role of a Master of Ceremonies. Then we’ll look at ways to orchestrate reviews to include the whole team and engage your audience, while always demonstrating “working software”. Next up is how to perform effective review follow-up gathering feedback towards high-impact improvements. Finally, we’ll wrap-up the session by exploring how to make your reviews a centerpiece of your agile adoption and cross-organizational transformation.
