Originally based on best practices within Microsoft product development and IT organizations, the   Microsoft Solutions Framework was created in 1994 and developed into standardized training courses to  promote consistency and effectiveness within the Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) organization.
Research and customer feedback has contributed to the improvement of the MSF models, principles and best practices as well as the evolution of the MSF course offerings.

Since 1994, companies have been using Microsoftᅡᆴ Solutions Framework (MSF) models, principles and   practices to achieve the maximum business value when successfully managing distributed technology   projects.

MSF structures projects for success by aligning business and technology objectives, proactively managing risk, and optimizing resources and processes.

The potential rewards of using MSF in your organization are better business solutions developed in less time by fewer people.

This is why Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) consultants widely use MSF techniques on projects. In fact, many enterprise clients send their entire staff for MSF training after seeing the results from MCS.
