Introduction

As more development teams move to utilizing Agile methodologies, the management tools are different than the traditional Project Management tools.  This article assumes that the reader already buys into agile principles.  For this article we will explore creating the kind of management reports that can be utilized in an agile development project.  If you are looking for an article to persuade you of agile development's effectiveness, feel free to check the books and websites referenced in this article.

To create these management reports, we will be looking at how Team Foundation Server (TFS) can be used to manage an agile project that uses XP like features; features like stories and short iterations.  TFS will keep that information in a database and we will create reports that will keep the information flowing to our customer.

We will look to create 3 reports: a story details report to allow you to print out your stories to post up in your war room, a current iteration report that reports the status of your current iteration, and a breakdown report.
