Another great article by Mike Caspar: Consider the ability of your Stakeholders to come to your Sprint Review or Demo before declaring it. From the article:
If you are in an environment that is struggling to get stakeholders to your review, ask yourself if you have chosen an impossible day of the week for this ceremony.
Please, for the sake of your team(s)….
When considering when your Sprint will end,
think of the ability of your stakeholders
to actually show up once in a while!
Stakeholders are people too. They don’t want to let the team down either.
Mike has great experience working with Scrum teams and I hope you read through his other articles as well.
