The Iteration Plan Review is held when the Iteration Plan for the current iteration has been developed. The objective of this review is to ensure that the proposed plan of work will satisfy the objectives set out for the iteration, as documented in the Software Development Plan.
Attendees of the Iteration Plan Review should include a customer representative and the project's management team (the project manager, plus the team leads for the various functional areas of the project team). Representative(s) of the Project Review Authority may also be involved.
