Kanban Tool

Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.

Miro

Miro is a great tool for getting your thoughts organized and also for working through such a process with a team. However it can seem a bit chaotic at first and so it is important to lay some ground rules and explain a bit the process and how the board could evolve so that people who are new to mind-mapping aren't too surprised. In a workshop setting, it is also helpful to split up the tasks of note-taking/card-writing and moderation -- very difficult for one person to do both. Another very important element to plan for is some time at the time to debrief the team on what was discussed and what the next steps would be -- again to mitigate the potential perception of chaos and futility of the exercise!

Pros

Kanban Tool

  • It provides a good basic overview of where tasks are on a timeline (particularly helpful for a pull-based approach).
  • It provides a good collaborative space to have multiple folks commenting on multiple tasks.
  • It does a good job of managing very basic visual elements of an agile development cycle.

Miro

  • It allows for an innovative way to connect ideas from different stakeholders in a diagramming session.
  • It enables the same level of discussions to occur in an online space as in a physical space.
  • It provides the perfect environment for a storm raining session with the team.

Cons

Kanban Tool

  • Some of the boards we have could do with more than 22 card colors, although it is enough for most projects.
  • Really looking forward to the iOS application, which is said to be coming in 2015.

  • Cards need development - I regularly use the cards for process flows so I can have options in a quick click location (SUPER useful), however, the limitations in values is a major problem, also, if I could just define a list easily up front and then use dropdowns or something similar for each type of value it'd be way better (e.g. choose from a list of systems, a list of teams, etc.).
  • Export to Visio - is not supported, but required by clients. Not having this *almost* negates the value of having Miro since I need to do time-wasting rework.
  • Can't paste tables from Excel - this is a major pain as I like to bring over certain resources or supporting data below my process flows. If I could paste in a table it'd be effortless (ideally I could then paste from Miro back to another medium as well in case if I need to communicate the figures or store elsewhere); as a workaround, I paste screenshots/images, but these have drawbacks as I can't just easily edit something previously uploaded (and could have been weeks/months prior so I don't have the source data or screenshot handy).

We are more likely than not to renew our use of Kanban. Even with its limits, it still is a good product that fulfills our needs.

Although I am not in the position to make this decision I'd encourage my managers to renew as the product makes our day to day tasks easier and more fun.

Again, this is a strong tool for software teams using Agile that are distributed across multiple geographies. It can be good for co-located teams too, but there are better platforms on the market like JIRA that provide a more built-out story.

Use of symbols in the UI may not reflect the intended action and requires users to hover to see a tooltip to determine the exact action. If users only use Miro periodically, this means they have to repeat this action each time when creating a board. It would be better to allow users to choose between seeing symbols, text, or a combination of both - especially for accessibility.

I have not yet had to engage support live. I have found every answer I needed by tapping the extensive knowledge base. I think they are taking the right approach in allowing me to self serve when I need some info. I will update my review if and when I need to tap a live representative.

I think there is a lot of detail on the interface. In some ways maybe too much. This is common for a powerful and detailed product, but perhaps there could be some stripped-back interfaces that are a little more "novice" friendly. Other color schemes or visual schemes might be nice, too.

Alternatives Considered

Kanban Tool

Kanban is superior to Scrum and AGILE because it can visually organize all your projects and data into one board. Kanban integrates with JIRA which digs deeper into the project data when it is needed. By integrating Kanban with JIRA, you don't need any other tool for project management that is effective for both the business and the development teams. Kanban is recommended for any user groups who wish to increase their efficiency to deliver products, transparency for all users and on-time productivity.

I personally prefer use of Miro to Trello, although Trello is easier to sort out access controls for, which may not necessarily be a Miro issue however. We use Azure DevOps extensively for development but have also used it for PI planning and team retros. Whilst the Deliver Plans view in Azure DevOps is useful, it is much more limited than using Miro for PI planning as dependencies are much harder to visually map. I also prefer using Miro for retrospectives, as Miro is more interactive and cards can be grouped and linked in more creative ways.

Return on Investment

Kanban Tool

  • We have been able to track projects much more efficiently
  • We have had less missed deadlines as we can see where a project is in the workflow
Care Bach Gerland | TrustRadius Reviewer

Miro

  • Retros can now be preformed digitally completely, and in less than one hour you can come up with at least 5 action points based on the retro exercise!
  • Interviewing of new candidates is a super smooth process! Because of the smooth tools it is super easy for me to conduct an interview that requires drawing on a whiteboard! You have post its, super easy to connect boxes and move them around! This smooth experience makes it nicer for the candidate as well which boosts their confidence and results in a better interview!
  • Our groomings are super efficient! In just 2 hours we can manage to draw at least 3 system designs and discuss them properly.
