Is this the future Microsoft template

Apr 11, 2012 at 2:54 PM

I see that the new fields created for Kanban are named as Microsoft... Is that because Microsoft is expected to adapt this version?

Also the project is using the concept of using Process step and System.State is this the direction MS is taking as well?  

I agree other then report there is no task board for this template. Has anyone tried any other taskboard that could work with this template (CodePlex / paid version)

Hi Karta717,

Thanks for your post.

RE: New fields named Microsoft... - the team that have developed this process template (as part of the Practical Kanban Guidance package) are a Microsoft team - the Microsoft Visual Studio ALM Rangers.

RE: Using Process Step - we considered two approaches for representing activity in Kanban, using System.State or using a custom Work Item Type. We chose to use a custom Work Item Type as it allows us to combine two states and apply meta data (such as WIP Limit) to the pair of states. The guidance document that is in the Downloads section describes the decision in more detail.

Thanks again,

adam
