Reviews are used to demonstrate and inspect an increment of the solution with stakeholders in order to elicit feedback to determine if the solution being developed aligns with the need.Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide – section 7.15
To perform a review, you first need a part of the solution to be delivered.
You also need to involve stakeholders, the development team, and some customer representative such as a product owner. Each of these may provide both positive or negative feedback which may impact what happens next.
