Overall Satisfaction with Lucidspark

We use Lucidspark for sprint planning and quarterly roadmap planning. We also use this for coming up with cross-team initiatives in an interactive way. We started with talking through what needs exist through our supplier partners eyes. We then grouped those needs under related sections. The teams then commented on/reacted to sticky notes with emojis in order to rank ideas. We then created a prioritization matrix in order to solidify our roadmap.
  • Interactivity
  • Visualization
  • Functionality
  • Connectors with Jira or Google Docs to eliminate some manual work (pull in ticket names for sprint planning or rows in Google Docs)
  • Increased collaboration
  • Time savings for planning (timed sections)
  • More efficient meetings due to planned collaboration and timed sections
We had a large meeting with three different teams to plan project initiatives. Although we had a tutorial at the beginning and had some practice activities, I felt that the UI was easy to learn and I really enjoyed that method of meeting. I prefer a hands-on approach to most things, as it personally keeps me engaged and makes me feel more confident to participate and express my thoughts/recommendations.
I did not know that there was a Google Drive integration, but I know that this would be useful to the organization and eliminate time-consuming input (copying over text from Google Docs). We have not utilized integrations much, so I cannot speak to this. One additional integration that would be helpful and used by my team would be with Jira. We have begun using Lucidspark for backlog grooming and sprint planning, so manually typing in ticket names can be time consuming. Being able to pull in ticket names as sticky notes automatically would be incredibly helpful.
Lucidspark performance has been solid so far. We have had a working session with 10+ people at a time and have never had any functionality issues. Working remotely can be challenging at times in terms of collaboration and interactivity. Using this for meetings has been such a game changer. It allows people to share their opinions and give input into project ideas/prioritization, which could be challenging in a regular meeting with multiple people. It keeps people remain engaged whereas they could zone out or be multitasking in traditional meetings without ever giving their input.
The entire department has enjoyed using this so far. It has been a true game changer in the way we approach meetings (especially those where we are sprint planning and project planning for the upcoming quarter). We have seen how it has changed cross-team collaboration firsthand. Each team has produced ideas that we would have never known had we not set up planning in a way that forces everyone to share their opinions and ideas.

Well suited for
  • Sprint planning
  • Backlog grooming
  • Cross-team collaboration
  • Remote whiteboarding
  • Remote onboarding - collaborative and gets new employees to talk and share their opinions in a fun and less intimidating way
Not well suited for
  • Communication (a bit messy and hard to follow to share out information)
  • Record keeping alongside Jira/Google Docs (cannot sync those applications, so a lot of the work is manual
