Cycle glossary

Product terminology simply explained


In product management, an Epic is a large and high-level user story or feature that represents a significant piece of work. It is like the main plotline of a movie, encompassing multiple smaller stories or tasks. Epics help product managers break down complex projects into manageable pieces and prioritize their development. For example, if you were building a social media platform, an epic could be "User Profile Creation" which would include multiple user stories such as "Allow users to sign up", "Enable profile picture upload", and "Provide options to customize profile information".
