Meaning of Inspection

In Scrum the term “Inspection” refers to the regular evaluation of the project’s progress and artifacts. These inspections are crucial to ensure that the team stays on the right track and that any deviations or issues are identified and addressed early on.

It is also one of the three Scrum pillars: Transparency, Inspection, and Adaptation.


Inspection occurs, for example, during the Daily Scrum, where the Developers discuss progress and identify obstacles. Or during the Sprint Review, where the Scrum Team and stakeholders evaluate the work completed during the Sprint. By inspecting regularly, the team is able to make adjustments quickly and continuously improve. That is why it is at the heart of agile working and Scrum.
