At Crema, we use principles of Agile planning and workflows in our projects. This means that we move quickly to test new ideas and pace our work in short sprints that allow us to make quick changes if needed.
Part of that workflow is a concept known as "Epics" which are made up of "Stories" that help define our tasks:
"In a sense, stories and epics in agile are similar to stories and epics in film or literature. A story is one simple narrative; a series of related and interdependent stories makes up an epic. The same is true for your work management, where the completion of related stories leads to the completion of an epic." -- Atlassian (https://www.atlassian.com/agile/project-management/epics-stories-themes)
Using these systems allows us to maintain clarity around the types of work we plan to do, give those actions meaning in the larger context of the application, and ensure that our customers get exactly what they need out of the tools we are building for them.
