Theme

A theme should ideally be used when the item (either a story or an infrastructure) to be added to the Storymap is in its broadest form. For instance in a website implementation project example, the item webshop could be a theme since it can further be broken down to items such as Delivery or Shopping basket. Such children of a theme can either be epics or stories depending on whether they need further breaking down. Note that the Storymap constrains one to start with theme(s) and from there further break down to epics/stories if necessary.
