This book offers a practical approach to running Agile software projects using the popular Scrum methodology. It focuses on the tools and templates that come with Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010, including the TFS Scrum template, showing how to apply them effectively in real-world project environments. The authors start with an overview of the interaction of traditional, scrum-based agile development techniques and Team Foundation Server. They show how iterative approaches enable teams to reliably deliver both commercial software and internal projects. The author describes the key templates that come with the product and demonstrates the best practices for using them. He covers the key data items to track and reviews the specific reports that turn that data into actionable information. But this is more than just a book about tools---it is a book about process and results. It focuses on the artifacts that must be in place to keep a project on track and heading in the right direction. This includes team models, process models and detailed tracking assets. While Visual Studio enables easy visibility to project metrics, the tools and data can become overwhelming. This book highlights the most pertinent information so that everyone involved can see just what is necessary. Developers and managers can track their work in Visual Studio, while other stake holders, from executives to beta testers, can use a web browser or Office to access the same information. This book addresses the messy challenges of communication, organization and resource constraints. It draws from experience of projects spanning the "envisioning phase" to "ship mode", using Visual Studio with Team Foundation Server to organize and track progress using Scrum methods. In short, this book combines the theory and practical experience to help the reader ship great software.
