Initiative

Initiative in agile project management – what does that mean?

An initiative in agile project management, together with epics and user stories, is a tool for implementing projects in a structured and flexible way. An initiative consists of several epics, which in turn are made up of user stories. An initiative thus describes a regulatory level. Initiatives often include epics from several teams and have a larger goal. Accordingly, more time is needed to complete an initiative. A well-known framework method in which initiatives are used is Scrum.
