Hi All,

We demo our completed stories after end of every sprint. I've heard few members in my team saying that we need documentation as a pre-requisite for demoing our work.Just wondering if documentation is required at all before demoing our work. Also, even if a document is made .. whose will refer it and what for???

I believe we should brief the Product owner and our scrum master/rest of the team about the story rather than creating a document. Please suggest me about what do you think is the right approach of giving Demos at end of sprint.

in my previous experience, we don't provide a documentation. when you demo, you show the user a working software which itself is much better than a document. however, one document to describe the features that are demoed, and the non-functional features should be handy for the discussion. in term of formalities of the document, it should ahere to a consistent format.

Thanks for your message. So this document should be provided by Tester or product Owner should make it?
I agree. Here's the link:
