New MSF Class Available For Partners


Title:


Managing your teams and business process using Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF) as a template


Abstract:


Microsoft® Solutions Framework (MSF) is a deliberate and disciplined approach to technology projects based work and organization based on a defined set of principles, models, disciplines, concepts, guidelines, and proven practices from Microsoft, our clients and our partner community.


This class introduces MSF concepts, provides an overview of its foundational principles, core models, and essential disciplines and then focuses on how their application contributes to the successful running of a services business.


What is Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF)?


Creating meaningful business solutions on time and within budget requires a proven approach. Microsoft Solutions Framework provides an adaptable framework for successfully delivering information technology solutions faster, requiring fewer people, and involving less risk, while enabling higher quality results.


MSF helps teams directly address the most common causes of technology project failure in order to improve success rates, solution quality, and business impact.


Created to deal with the dynamic nature of technology projects and environments, MSF fosters the ability to adapt to continual change within the course of a project. MSF is called a framework instead of a methodology for specific reasons. As opposed to a prescriptive methodology, MSF provides a flexible and scalable framework that can be adapted to meet the needs of any project (regardless of size or complexity) to plan, build, and deploy business-driven technology solutions.


During this 2-day session, we will discuss how to apply the MSF team and process models to your partner organizations to drive better quality, efficiency and profit
