Methodology

As opposed to a prescriptive methodology, MSF provides a flexible and scalable framework to meet the needs of any sized organization or project team. MSF guidance consists of principles, models, and disciplines for managing the people, process, and technology elements that most projects encounter.

The eight foundational principles of MSF're:

1. Foster open communications. The MSF Process Model enables an open and free flow of information among the team members and key stakeholders to prevent misunderstandings and reduce the probability that work will have to be redone. Documenting the progress of the project and making it available to the team members, stakeholders, and customers can best achieve this.

2. Work toward a shared vision. The MSF Process Model provides a phase (the Envisioning Phase) and a separate milestone (Vision/Scope Approved) for creating a shared vision. A vision includes detailed understanding of the goals and objectives that the solution needs to achieve. A shared vision highlights the assumptions that the team members and customers have for the solution.

3. Empower team members. Empowering the team members implies that the members accept responsibility and ownership of work assigned to them. Team empowerment can be achieved by preparing schedules where the team members commit to complete their work on a fixed date. This makes the team members feel accountable and also provides a method for identifying any potential delays early in the project.

4. Establish clear accountability and shared responsibility. The MSF Team Model is based on the principle that each role is accountable for the quality of the solution. All the team members share the overall responsibility of the project because the project can fail due to a mistake made by a single member.

5. Focus on delivering business value. The solution must deliver value to the organization in the form of business value. This business value is achieved only after the solution is completely deployed into the production environment.

6. Stay agile, expect change. MSF assumes that the solution will encounter continuous changes before being deployed to the production environment. The team should be aware and prepared to manage such changes.

7. Invest in quality. In MSF, each team member is responsible for the quality of the solution. To confirm the quality throughout the project's duration, a test team is formed. This ensures that the solution meets the quality level of the stakeholders.

8. Learn from all experiences. MSF states that the experiences derived from one project should be used and shared with teams in other projects. These experiences can also help to identify the best practices that should be followed in your organization.
