Epic

An epic is like a super-story. When a story is too big to fit comfortably in a sprint and/or contains a lot of unknowns then it is usually better suited to be an epic. Epics are fine on the product backlog, but as they approach the top of the backlog they are typically decomposed down in to several stories. We don't bring epics in to sprints.

Story

A story is a functional requirement that provides some business value. It also has to be small enough to comfortably fit within a sprint.

Stories are written in a language that is easily understood by the Product Owner and business users. That way they can understand the progress that has been achieved by completing the story.

The format of a story is:

As a [role] I want [something] so that [value] ..

example:

Quote
As an employee I want to see the latest news from HR so that I am informed of what is going on.

As an employee I want to know the contact names of all the people in HR so that I know who to phone/email when I have a question.

As an employee I want to have access to HR policy documents so that I can be sure I am following policy.
