Enacting Scrum in Visual Studio

In this excerpt of their book, Sam Guckenheimer and Neno Loje describes the mechanisms that Visual Studio (primarily Team Foundation Server [TFS]) provides to support the team enacting an Agile process. This article provides an inside-out overview of what makes the enactment of Agle possible in Visual Studio.

Microsoft provides two process templates as standard: the Microsoft Visual Studio Scrum developed in collaboration with Ken Schwaber and the MSF for Agile Software Development. MSF Agile is also built around an agile base but incorporates a broader set of artifacts than the Scrum process template. You might choose to customize your process template using the Process Template Editor based on the project context and the retrospectives.
