Agile epics: definition, examples and models

Use agile Epics to segment a large corpus of tasks in smaller stories.

Summary: EPICS are corpus of tasks that can be subdivided into specific tasks (called “User Stories”) based on customer or final users’ needs/demands. Epics are an important practice for agile and devops teams.

When you adopt Agile and DevOps, the Epics are used to manage tasks. These are corpus of tasks which can be subdivided into specific tasks (called “stories” or “user stories”) based on the needs/demands of customers or end users.

Epics are a useful way to organize your work and create a hierarchy. The idea is to divide the work into smaller deliverables, so that you can carry out major projects and continue to deliver value to your customers on a regular basis. EPICS help teams break their work, while continuing to pursue a more important objective.

Maintaining agility in the organization of large tasks, like Epics, is not an easy task. Knowing the relationship between Epics and good agile and healthy practices is an essential competence, regardless of the size of your organization.

What is an agile epic ?

An Epic is a vast corpus of tasks that can be subdivided into smaller stories, sometimes called “tickets” in Jira. Epics often include several teams, on several projects, and can even be followed on several tables.

Epics delivery practically always covers a series of sprints. As the team deepens their knowledge of an EPIC thanks to the development and feedback of customers, user stories will be added and deleted, if necessary. This is the key with agile Epics: the perimeter is flexible, depending on the customer feedback and the team’s pace.

Example of Agile Epic

Imagine that we are in 2050 and that we are working for an agency organizing recreational space trips. We do around ten launches per year, none of them is therefore the biggest project of the year, but each launch is far from routine and will therefore require many hours-personnes. This configuration is perfect for an epic.

An example of Epic, “Launch of space tourism, March 2050” includes stories for routine tasks, as well as stories aimed at improving the key aspects of the launch of the shuttle: of the purchase of space tickets to the Launch of the shuttle itself. Thus, several teams will contribute to this Epic by working on a wide range of stories.

The development team supporting the purchase of tickets for the launch of March 2050 could structure its Epic as follows:

Epic: Launch – March 2050
Story: update the dates beach to include the dates of the launch of March 2050. Story: reduce the loading time of the flight lists requested to
