Join Doug Rose for an in-depth discussion in this video Summary of Microsoft TFS, part of Agile Project Management: Comparing Agile Tools.
- [Instructor] This should wrap up our coverage of TFS.…If you're a Microsoft Shop, you'll almost certainly…going to be looking into this software.…But, there are some dangers that I just want to…point out that you should be aware of.…As I mentioned, I'm not a huge fan of…assigning capacity to individuals in a sprint.…I think that's a dangerous precedent…here to set on your Agile team.…You don't want individuals to be able to float…in and out of your Agile team.…That will make it really difficult…to maintain a sustainable velocity.…
TFS almost invites you to do that, which I don't love.…Then there's an option in the board view,…when you click Board here in the middle,…to group by people and not user stories.…Again, I'm not in love with this idea because…it's putting a lot of emphasis on individuals.…In Agile, you want to put a lot of emphasis…on your self-organized team.…Finally, I'm not in love with…how Microsoft views Agile projects.…The whole emphasis on features seems a bit like…a throw-back to traditional project management.…
