    Three months ago, Loud&Clear eliminated job descriptions. Every role in our team is now neatly summarised in just 8 user stories, describing the 'features' each person brings to Loud&Clear.

    With this change, our company is busier than ever, but we're also the calmest we've ever been. Traditional job descriptions are long, uninspiring and irrelevant. They were buried in contracts, and unnecessarily secretive. As our people and our company evolved, JDs often became comically out of date. 

    We think Job Epics is the Agile approach to traditional Job Descriptions.  In a 20-30 minute talk, I'll discuss what motivated us to rethink JDs, how we went about implementing user stories for each person in our company, and what we've learned.
