The System Demo provides an integrated view of the newest features regarding the latest iteration that is delivered by every team in the Agile Release Train (ART). Each Demonstration gives an objective measurement of progress in between a Program Increment (PI) to the stakeholders.
It’s a critical event that is an effective method for gathering immediate, ART level feedback from everyone that is involved in the task, as well as sponsors, stakeholders and customers. It’s the one real measure of value, progress and velocity of the fully integrated work from all the teams during the previous iteration. It’s a process that requires a lot of planning and preparation, but provides a fast feedback towards building the ideal solution.
