Many teams practicing Scrum adopt a mid-Sprint Review as a practice to help them ensure they are on track to deliver on their forecast by the end of the Sprint. For some teams, this involves holding an informal demo halfway through the Sprint to get feedback on the work they are doing. For other teams, the mid-Sprint review works differently and is used to provide transparency around a different set of issues.
This episode of The Reluctant Agilist was recorded at the 2019 North American Global Scrum Gathering in Austin, TX. In the interview, EvolveAgility Founder Dhaval Panchal and I talk through how he began using a mid-Sprint review to help the teams he is working with gain awareness of their level of confidence that they will meet their commitment for the Sprint. During the conversation you’ll hear Dhaval and I discuss how it works and why.
