Thankfully, Jeff Beehler has rededicated himself to his blogging. If you're not following his blog already and you're reading mine, I highly recommend adding his blog to your reading list. You stand to learn a lot about the future of Team System, how we're building it, and software development at Microsoft in general.
See Jeff's latest post (What are value propositions anyway?) for insight into how value propositions influence product design.
In my last post, I wrote about "value propositions" as one of the key items we received feedback on during our recent Software Design Reviews (SDR). Since we haven't talked much about the use of value propositions (value props for short) during prior releases, I want to give the concept and practice a little more of introduction than I've given them so far.
