Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We used Miro for discovery and sprint planning ceremonies for a CRM implementation for one of our clients. We use it for whiteboarding our process flows, persona identification, team planning, team building, requirements planning, and user story planning and estimating. We use the planning poker feature to estimate our stories and we found it super useful to get all of the developer's input on our technical stories. We also use Miro for our program schedule planning and retro that occurs on a monthly basis. Miro is used across the entire project scrum team and it helps us address jotting large & complex ideas and lay them out in a manner that is digestible and allows us to go through each piece of the bigger puzzle. The collaboration of dozens of users on the scrum team allows us to discuss ideas, requirements, and solutions in real-time and trace who has done and/or submitted what. Commenting on the board allows us to follow up on items that are to be discussed later. Overall, we are quite happy with Miro.
  • Collaboration: many users can collaborate on the same board at once.
  • Infinite canvas: create as many sections.
  • Swim lanes: use to track the status of open/action items.
  • Planning poker: fun & interactive way of estimating user stories.
  • Navigation: zooming in and out can be troublesome and laggy, especially on older computers
  • User management is a bit confusing: I have two licenses to Miro (one from Slalom and another from my client) and it was hard to switch and admin them.
  • Clarity of business objectives.
  • Reduced discovery time.
  • Clear definition of roles and processes.
No, I don't have any key insights here.
I give no rating because we didn't use the integration features of Miro.
Yes, Miro's online whiteboard allowed us (the project team, scattered in Canada and US) to meet with our client that is located in a different city in Canada. The client team is also dispersed into a few different offices, so this collaboration tool allowed us to work together as one team effectively.

Miro is very well used for teams of all sizes, to collaborate on planning and executing software development in an agile methodology. It is very useful to have large amounts of information in a single place but organize it in a meaningful way. Add "Frames" that allow users to quickly navigate to relevant information.
