The backlog is the global "to do-list" for the upcoming releases. A backlog is usually composed of three key hierarchical pieces:

  • Initiatives - Higher-level business priorities or big projects potentially spanning multiple teams.
  • Epics - Once the higher level priorities are settled, the initiatives break down into large pieces of work, which consist of multiple stories.
  • Stories - User stories capture functionality requirements.


Initiative: World-class product experience

               Epic: An awesome front end

                         Story: Server exploration and prototyping
