About this template

Khalikane Imane, an enterprise agile coach, created this template to help teams understand that sprint reviews are more than just demos. At its core, a sprint review is about in-depth conversations and collaborations among participants and stakeholders.

By reviewing completed tasks and sharing feedback as a team, everyone will be on the same page about where the product is headed and what comes next.

Sprint Review Agenda

1. Set the stage for the meeting

  • If there are any new participants, give a short introduction before you begin.

  • What was concluded in the last review? What are the goals for this review?

2. Share an overview of the completed tasks

  • What tasks got completed?

  • How do these tasks relate to your overall sprint goal?

3. Demo and review of value delivered The development team shows a working model of their product to the audience. 

  • Is the product functional?

  • Can you demonstrate its business value?

4. Feedback from stakeholders on product increment Stakeholders assess the presentation against the original sprint goal and provide any feedback they have.

  • Did the increments meet the users needs? 

  • Did it create value? 

  • Did it account for internal dependencies and improved functionalities?

5. Share what’s planned for the next sprint The product owner announces the focus of upcoming sprints and accepts input on what to prioritize going forward.

6. Celebrate the end of the sprint The meeting comes to a close with informal chats and appreciation for work done.

When to use this template

Imane (the template author) thinks of sprint reviews as sessions for testing the new features and asking questions; in other words, demo + adapt. Use this template if you want your sprint reviews to be more interactive and exploratory.

This template ensures your progress and decisions are transparent, and that plans are adapted during the meeting to maximize value in the future.

Sprint Demo Meeting Agenda

1. Present the sprint goal

  • What is the goal of the sprint? How do you emphasize during your presentation?

2. Review of what’s done and what hasn’t been done Give a high-level overview of what has been achieved and how it ties into the Sprint planning or previous demos (did you achieve what you said you would last time?)

  • What was done in the sprint?

  • What hasn’t been completed yet?

3. Demo the work Tell a story from the particular persona or user role. Stakeholders want to see the value of your product. Try to structure the demo into a series of scenarios or scripts that minimize context switching. 

  • What are the general themes in the work you completed?

  • How does your work tie into the broader sprint goals?

4. Ask questions and share observations

  • What can be seen in the demo?

  • Any feedback?

5. Review key metrics

  • Key Metric 1

  • Key Metric 2

6. Review the timeline and priorities At the end of each scenario (as well as the demo as a whole), point to the future directions for the work so that the stakeholders know what to expect next time.
