5 5 Does it Work? Yes, as long as you chose the right bits of MSF for your project [1] High-profile projects that used MSF [1] and (Aris Corp, now Ciber, [1]www.ciber.co.uk UK Government Gateway [1] Visual Studio, Windows 2003, Windows XP [1] Yes, as long as you chose the right bits of MSF for your project [1] High-profile projects that used MSF [1] and (Aris Corp, now Ciber, [1]www.ciber.co.uk UK Government Gateway [1] Visual Studio, Windows 2003, Windows XP [1]

6 6 Is It For Everyone? [1] Some parts of MSF will work for every project, but in general, most of MSF works for larger projects How small is large enough? 3-12 months (best of all 4-6) and with a team of at least 3 (best of all 7-11) Some parts of MSF will work for every project, but in general, most of MSF works for larger projects How small is large enough? 3-12 months (best of all 4-6) and with a team of at least 3 (best of all 7-11)

11 11 Key MSF Components Models

12 12 1.Team Model – Team of Peers Communication Delivering the solution within project constraints Satisfied customers Enhanced user effectiveness Smooth deployment and ongoing operations Approval for release only after all quality issues are identified and addressed Building to specification DevelopmentDevelopment TestTest Release Management User Experience Product Management Program Management [1,5]

13 13 1. Team Model- Scaling The Model You can combine some roles to teams as small as 3 people [1]. Do not combine some (like Product and Program Manager, or anything with Developer) [1]. You can scale it to 10, 100s and 1000s by using two methods: Functional Teams (many people for one role)[1,5] Feature Teams (sub-teams for each feature) [1,5] You can combine some roles to teams as small as 3 people [1].

25 25 Daily Build [2] Building the product in an executable form on a daily basis A public daily build is A strong indicator that a team is functional A way to make the product and its progress visible The heartbeat of the development process Building the product in an executable form on a daily basis A public daily build is A strong indicator that a team is functional A way to make the product and its progress visible The heartbeat of the development process

26 26 Tips for Daily Build [2] Use source-code control system (such as Microsoft Visual Source Safe, Rational ClearCase etc.) Each developer works locally, i.e. all code and executables on every station Every day code is collected, built and published and every morning developers download the newest build Automate it all (batch files etc.) Developing them is an ongoing activity that will be complete when your first project completes Use Visual Studio.NET 2003 with MSDN Universal – there is new automation for daily build in it!

27 27 Key MSF Components Disciplines

28 28 1. Project Management discipline [4] Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activates to meet project requirements. Dose not equate to “being the boss” Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activates to meet project requirements. Dose not equate to “being the boss”

29 29 2.Risk Management Discipline [1,4] Project Risk Distinguish risk form existing problems Define a risk management process for identifying, analyzing and addressing the risk Increase the likelihood of success in the project By minimizing the potential of failure.

31 31 3. MSF Readiness Management [4] It address the need for team readiness that spans the entire project. It focus on the area of knowledge, skills, and the abilities required at individual and solution level. How to optimize team readiness? Measure proficiencies (self and skill assessment) Analyze gaps. Create learning plans. Execute learning plans It address the need for team readiness that spans the entire project.

32 32 XP vs. MSF [6] Extreme Programming (XP) came after MSF. Similarities regarding the Zero Defect Mindset and Daily Builds But they are different in XP doesn’t define a development cycle like MSF. That development cycle is replaced by a set of practices that reduce the development quantum’s, notably short releases and continuous integration. MSF as a traditional approach is geared to large teams performing long development cycles, XP is geared to small teams performing many short development iterations.

33 33 XP vs. MSF – Testing [7] 1.MSF defines test both as a team role and as a set of tasks to implement during implementation. While XP refers test as code that verifies the correctness of implementation code. The team members have the responsibility of writing test code and implementation code. 2.MSF includes on its development cycle a task for stabilizing. XP dispenses the need for such stage by continuously running tests. 3.MSF does not define any testing tools, the test team is responsible for choosing and/or developing them. XP, uses Junit and Xunit.

49 49 Risk Assessment Metrics [3] Back to previous slide To analyze and prioritize risk, MSF uses “Risk Exposure” to measure the overall threat of the project as a result of the risk. Risk Exposure = Risk Probability × Risk Impact Where Risk Probability : The likelihood that the risk consequence will occur. Risk Impact : An estimate of the severity of effect if risk consequences occur.
