A few years ago I was working with a development team at the end of a very long release cycle. About 15 of us were gathered in a meeting room giving our status update.

A few things happen at the end of every agile release cycle if you're dong agile 'by the book'-- a demo to show off what will be delivered to the customer, a meeting to start talking about what to develop for the next sprint, and a retrospective.

Justin Rohrman Justin Rohrman Profile: Justin Rohrman
Agile, Scrum

Companies have a hard time putting out software, and an even harder time doing it on time.
