Hello All.
I am new to the forum, so my apologies up front for not doing research.
I am desperately looking for a template/sample document which is used during a Sprint Review.
The document should talk about the user stories covered in the Sprint review, any user stories that were not completed (if any) and then a sign off from the client about approval.
I am not able to find anything like this. Just hoping that someone can provide some guidance. My email is Please contact me if possible.

Wow. Why would you want this? Scrum does NOT require such a document, and
If you do some digging into xUnifiedProcess, I'm sure you'll find the document you're looking for.

Like Fredrik said. Scrum does not require this. Ask your customer why they require it. This is an opportunity for you to coach your customer about value driven development.

If the Development Team is a third party contractor, and incremental funding is in effect, it is plausible that some type of sign-off will be needed in order to release further funds. However, this should *not* be on the basis of user stories completed. It should be on the basis of the client having received an actual working increment.

If this template is just a sprint summary, one that captures metrics and preserves findings for the team's own reference, then that's a different matter. In that case it hardly matters what the "template" is...just go ahead and put together your own. Nobody needs to sign that off.

If the template is intended to convey metrics to parties *outside* of the team, then that is a different matter again. You just need a dashboard report...or better still, a chart on an information radiator. Again, nobody needs to sign that off.
