Agile divides the deliverable result into pre-cycles of deliveries. This way it is possible to break the project down into smaller parts, which you constantly evaluate and partially improve upon as you work towards your final deliverable, using an iterative and incremental approach in order to enrich your process and produce a better and faster result.

One of the most important times for a design review is at the end of a development sprint. A design review evaluates whether or not the developed product is in line with the original creative vision and user experience. In other words, it’s a review of the developed project which helps to verify all graphic and technical components display and function properly.

As the design gets passed from design teams to product owners and development teams, they each make changes due to temporal or business issues, which can mean the final product doesn't correspond with the design team’s vision.
