How do I create number of projects with identical custom project dashboards?

I want to create a number of projects or teams whose workflow will be the same including having a customized dashboard that will be used by all projects. What is the easiest way to do this without configuring each project separately?

A process definition, which includes dashboard definitions, can be shared between projects.

Dashboard customization for a shared process should be done by customizing the process template. Either by creating a new process or by modifying an existing one. Note that a new process can be created by exporting an existing one and editing it (note that the id must be unique) and then importing it.

Some information for process customization is in the online help, in particular dashboard customization is covered here.

There is also an article on about shared configurations for work item management.
