Quick tips for using Team System Work Item Tracking for scrum process

I’ve already posted a bunch of posts on how I use and have used TFS as a support in our scrum projects. Elegant Code have now published an interesting presentation with some hands-on advice and comparisons. You can find the presentation here. Observe that the presentation is not for beginners. You need to understand the basics behind work item tracking and is in the mode of already using TFS but thinking about which work item template and which tools are appropriate.

A note to the presentation, though. Escrum won’t be updated in the future so even if you were considering transition to that template, you should probably rethink your decision. Myself, I’m using Conchango’s Scrum For Team system and EPIServer Scrum Dashboard.

    I’ve worked with a number of clients who use Scrum. When it comes to working dispersed teams, http://www.polarion.com has a nice solution, workflow driven, with workflow customizable and project templates with Scrum basics already configured. Work item tracking built right in. The resident Scrum master is currently blogging about how they use their own tool for Scrum their own development: http://blog.polarion.com.

      thanks for the advice. how do you think this works better than the work item tracking already built into Team System? We use that for our source control and that is the main reason for us using the work item tracking from TFS in the first place. What I would love is to write the requirements/stories so they became better linked to automatic tests in the build environment.
