How to know the Process Template used to create a TFS project?

Once a TFS Team Project is created using a process template, there is no record of which process template was used to create the project for later reference. If someone create a project and left the team and another member wants to find out the process template used to create their project, then he will be in a bit of problem as he can’t directly check it any where.

The only possible way to find it is to check its work item types. For example, a project created using Scrum template will have a Backlog item of type “Product Backlog Item” as shown below.

ScrumProcess

A project created using Agile template will have a Backlog item of type “User Story” as show below.

AgileProcess

A project created using CMMI template will have a Backlog item of type “Requirement” as show below.

CMMI Process

By checking the work item type i.e. whether it is a Product Backlog Item or a User Story or a Requirement, we can determine the process template used to create the project as Scrum or Agile or CMMI respectively.
