Epics, Stories, Themes, and Initiatives: How would you define each, and how does your team use them?

Max Rehkopf Atlassian Team Mar 01, 2018

Home to any and all discussions prompted in Atlassian's article: Epics, Stories, Themes, and Initiatives

3 comments

Hi there!  The criteria I use is the time that it may take to complete them.  If the amount of work can be completed in one sprint (e.g. 2 weeks) I use stories.  I've used mostly SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework), so I'll use some terms borrowed from SAFe: If the whole effort can be completed within a PI (i.e a number of sprints after which the teams meet again to sync up and plan together) I use epics. I haven't used themes or initiatives yet, but I see a use case for them to represent capabilities in a Solution train.

Hi Max, how do you implement Initiatives ?  Are you using Portfolio ? Thanks.

As an aside, I didn't see a link from the article to this community page - adding one might be a good way to encourage more discussion. Thanks
