When a Sprint finishes, it is necessary to review and check the work done in order to verify that it has been carried out as planned.
For this purpose, it is necessary that the entire team collaborates and participates in order to make visible aspects requiring a change. The idea is not just making a simple review but encouraging collaboration and feedback among team members, product owners, and interested parties, if any. All of them will meet to make/see a demonstration of all the requirements completed during a Sprint, as mentioned previously.
This meeting –free and open– values transparency and sincerity regarding any situation, problem or difficulty that could have arisen, and the solutions applied to achieve making a presentation of something that is completely finished and ready to deliver. Depending on the case, this may not be a finished product, but it should be a feature thereof that is ready to start working. The acceptance of such feature will depend on the terms agreed with the product owner.
In the event that the delivery is not ready due to missing things or failures, the product will be included in the product backlog and will have to be again estimated and prioritized depending on the other items of such backlog. The team, the product owner, and the interested parties will agree on the inclusion of more items in the product backlog in order to increase its value and consider it for a next sprint.
