Quality Assurance/Agile software development.


In Agile software development, is it written specifically that the Project Manager or the Scrum Master is responsible for demonstrating the software at the end of each sprint.

Any links or references to this, would be greatly appreciated.

In my mind, a great deal has been lost from what the original meaning referred to.  Today its usage serves marketing more than development.  Agile represents a development philosophy.  The Waterfall model is also a philosophy but there was a time when it was the only one with a reputation.  (In my mind it can only refer to a mature team.)  The level of detail reflected in the Manifesto doesn't entail "Who does What".
