Product Management and Team System

Visual Studio 2005

The product manager is the main advocate for the product management constituency in the MSF Team Model. The product manager is the proxy for the end consumer of the product. The product manager has overall product mix responsibility for the requirements. The product manager must ensure that the product vision is met through the requirements and the acceptance tests developed to validate the product. The product manager must show that the product aligns with the organizations strategic planning and fits the market segment(s) intended in the original vision statement. The product manager will ensure that the project stays within budget and that the business case is realized. The product manager's work is used as the primary source for the track checkpoints in the MSF Governance Model.

The project management workflow is as follows:

  • Capture Product Vision

  • Release a Product

Also listed here are links to help program managers adopt the workflow for the MSF Team Model using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System.
