Whose doing your Sprint demos
Ok, this has to be the shortest blog post ever. But just maybe it's something useful you can try. So this is more of a tip than a blog post.
Typically during the Sprint demos the devlopers do the dog and pony shows. They coded it and so they generally like to do the demos.
What we tried out at my last gig, was for the QA folks to do the demos. What's good about this is that it really shows the chickens and pigs that the loop has been closed.
As we all know, it's acceptance tested stories that really count. Code complete is meaningless. When QA is put on the spot to do the demo's they really ensure that the feature is understood and is working well. It also makes them feel important and part of the process.
Try it, even rotate the responsibility after each Sprint.
It worked in our context and may well work for you.
