MSF for CMMI Process Improvement
David J. Anderson posted on his blog that Microsoft "will be releasing the Beta of MSF for CMMI Process Improvement on MSDN next weekend." I'm personally looking forward taking a look at the implementation. David first hinted at an Agile/CMMI "best of both worlds" methodology he dubbed "The Learning Organization Maturity Model" in his book Agile Management for Software Engineering. His blog contains really insightful information about architecture and process - I'd highly recommend anyone interested in this space to check it out.
My upcoming book "Professional Visual Studio 2005 Team System" by WROX/Wiley Publishing will contain good coverage on both MSF Agile and MSF for CMMI Process Improvement. In fact, if you've worked at any length with Team System you'll come to the realization that process is the glue that binds all of the elements of Team System together. My epiphany occured while writing the chapter.
To stay on the pulse of MSF, I'd recommend looking at the MSF Forums on the Microsoft website, the official Team System MSF Website, and Randy Miller, Rob Caron and David Anderson's blogs.
