    • We start with the team’s current list of requirements
    • Easily enter new requirements – using web dashboards
    • All stored on master TFS server - flow back into Visual Studio for dev team
    • …The team can align their plans by breaking down the requirements into work…
    • …continuing until all the requirements are broken down successfully…
    • The Project Manager opens the same plan from TFS into MS Project for easy scheduling…
    • She can use the new Team Planner view to quickly view the team workload…
    • …assign tasks…
    • …and level out the work…
    • Project’s new “manually scheduled tasks” gives the Project Manager control over tasks that are commitment based while still supporting easy auto-scheduling of the rest.
    • …or we can do it all automatically… 
    • …and my whole team is load- balanced, taking dependencies into account
    • Finally, in VS 2010 all my information from Project is back in TFS, for easy coordination between the dev team and the PMO
    • 36 Microsoft Confidential
    • All requirements/tasks/… always stored on same master TFS server for a single source of truth The team can use the Agile Planning workbooks to assign work…
    • …and use a simple view to load balance the team
    • Planning can account for out of the office time
    • The team can easily flip adjust the work assignments based on capacity…
    • …until the team is load- balanced. The team is ready to commit to this work.
    • During development, a built-in burndown provides visibility into the team progress

    • Again, starting with a list of requirements
    • I can run queries which will tell me which requirements are being tested…
    • …and which requirements are not being tested!
    • That same set of requirements is pulled …and testers can through into the then easily add/link testing tools… the right test cases to verify their implementation
    • When the tester runs tests, new bugs are automatically created with trace relationships to the right test cases and requirements
    • …and those bugs automatically flow back in Visual Studio, enabling team collaboration...
    • The development team views the bugs in their tool, Visual Studio
    • From the bug, it is easy to see the failed test case
    • The developer can drill into details on the test case to resolve the issue
    • Again, same set of requirements… With quality and progress traced and reported back, for complete end to end traceability
    • Everyone has transparency into the overall quality
    • 56 Microsoft Confidential
    • Several dashboards provide additional transparency, including team progress Reports are all just Excel, so they’re simple to open and customize
    • The dashboards are interactive. Web parts give direct access to TFS data….allowing stakeholders to communicate to the team
    • Logging issues and checking on their progress
    • My team can manage all their work from a personal dashboard
    • PMO Project Server data, metrics, work products, TFS models, CMDB ALM policies, Ops compliance Management Packs, Policy Templates, Capacity Models Tested Configured VMs Datacenter Models, Automated Diagnostics
    • Late in the project she and the CIO perform a data-driven analysis of the entire portfolio to review what is meeting goals, including prioritizing incoming demand What is cool: Project server provides teams with a way to get a handle on the tons of projects they have running, to quantitatively assess business value.
    • They confirm the value of the current project, which will help them prioritize resources and budget for the upcoming quarter What is cool: Unified quantitative view of the business value of projects – priority, cost, value, resources & status
    • The Project Manager creates a new Team Project and associates the project plan the VSTS project
    • The PM reviews the full portfolio of projects across the enterprise. All other projects are on track but this project is visibly in trouble. What is cool: VSTS-Project Server integration gives you top to bottom transparency and unified project management. Project Server rollup pulls key dev project stats (bugs, etc.) from VSTS
    • • Standardize • Full planning tools • End to end The Future TFS 2010 TFS 2008 process with with both MS business process templates Project and Excel alignment, • Define metrics to Agile Planning balancing and manage projects • Full requirements tracking the entire • Utilize CMMI or traceability project portfolio Agile best practices • Simplified • Complete out of the box Transparency with integration from • Receive accurate reports and operations to status from the dev SharePoint development, team dashboards flowing production issues quickly and seamlessly back to the software team

    • I can run queries which will tell me which requirements are being tested…
    • …and which requirements are not being tested!
    • A tester working in the VSTS Test and Lab Manager can see the requirements and create their tests
    • The tester runs the tests
    • Which starts up the Microsoft Test Runner…
    • …stepping the manual tester through each test step
    • Rich, actionable bugs can be created right from the test
    • Automatically capturing all the environment data
