Hands-on Agile Meetup #16: Liberating Structures for Scrum: The Sprint Review

Liberating Structures 4 Scrum — Hands-on Agile Academy

TL;DR: Liberating Structures for Scrum: The Sprint Review

The 16th Hands-on Agile meetup continues exploring Liberating Structures for Scrum; this time we will address the Sprint Review.

Liberating Structures cover a set of easy to learn, yet powerful ways to collaborate as a team—even as a large team—, overcoming traditional communications approaches like presentations, managed discussions, or another disorganized brainstorming at which the loudest participants tend to prevail.

Hands-on Agile Meetup #16: Liberating Structures Scrum — Sprint Review

Use Liberating Structures to Improve Your Scrum Events

Throughout the coming months, we will create exciting new ways how to improve classic Scrum events like the Daily Scrum, the Sprint Review or the Sprint Retrospective. Moreover, we will use Liberating Structures for difficult challenges that agile coaches, Scrum Masters, and Product Owners face, for example, reviewing the existing product design process.

Using Liberating Structures will improve not just the typical Scrum team events. They are particularly well-suited to improve the collaboration of larger groups, for example, all of the Scrum teams of a Nexus. They also allow to include stakeholders from all parts of an organization or your customers in meta-level activities such as retrospectives.

Upcoming Scrum and Liberating Stuctures Training Classes and Workshops

This sixth meetup of the “Liberating Structures for Scrum” series will address the Sprint Review.

According to the Scrum Guide, the Sprint Review — attended by the Scrum Team and key stakeholders — comprises of the following actions:

  • The Product Owner explains what Product Backlog items have been “Done” and what has not been “Done”;
  • The Development Team discusses what went well during the Sprint, what problems it ran into, and how those problems were solved;
  • The Development Team demonstrates the work that it has “Done” and answers questions about the Increment;
  • The Product Owner discusses the Product Backlog as it stands. He or she projects likely target and delivery dates based on progress to date (if needed);
  • The entire group collaborates on what to do next, so that the Sprint Review provides valuable input to subsequent Sprint Planning;
  • Review of how the marketplace or potential use of the product might have changed what is the most valuable thing to do next; and,
  • Review of the timeline, budget, potential capabilities, and marketplace for the next anticipated releases of functionality or capability of the product.

Join us on September 5th, 2019, and participate in the joined effort to identify how Liberating Structures can help you to overcome Sprint Review anti-patterns and failures.
