Creating the Sprint Backlog for Scrum Masters – Part 2
Sprint Backlog Closure: The Sprint Review
Once all of the items within the sprint backlog have been completed, it will be time for a Sprint Review. The Sprint Review is when the development team presents the completed tasks, through a demonstration, to the stakeholders.
The Sprint Backlog cannot be deemed completed and all tasks officially ‘done’ until each task has been approved by the Product Owner. Any items deemed as incomplete or ‘not done’ will be reviewed by the Product Owner who will then either return them to the developer for completion during the same sprint, or they will reformat the requirements of the task and include it in the next sprint.

Scrum Master and the Backlog Process
From defining the sprint to managing the entire backlog process, the Scrum Master oversees all aspects of a sprint. With tools such as Trello at his/her disposal, the Scrum Master is able to see a visual depiction of the health of the sprint, ensuring that they are able to identify problems and remove obstacles often before they become an issue.
