A new case study on Clear Channel Communications use of Visual Studio Team System and Microsoft Solution Framework is now available at: http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/casestudy.aspx?casestudyid=201308. Check it out.
Some quotes from this case study:
“With clear roles, responsibilities, and a good set of tools, people are empowered and have a real opportunity to contribute. Projects now have a new sense of vibrancy, energy, and personal accountability. – David Wilson, CIO, Clear Channel Communications”
“Even though the vision for our new methodology came from Visual Studio Team System, and much of our solutions framework came from MSF, we invested very heavily ourselves—and that’s what it takes. Great results require deep investment—even sacrifice. Not all organizations need to travel the same distance, but every organization has to own the product. Certainly, an organization could hand MSF to the developers, and they may get some value from it as a development tool, but that organization will never get the full organizational impact that’s possible. People need to understand MSF and make its values their own – John Szurek, Enterprise Architect at Clear Channel Communications”
