Overall Satisfaction with Miro
I've introduced Miro to our REEMEA Market Group as a support tool for remote Integrated Strategic Planning process workshops, and I may say that this is a great tool. In the beginning, it required an introduction to participants on how to operate, but then it allowed remote problem solving, brainstorming, voting on ideas, and doing complex follow-up. It also allowed us to have a bit of fun. I've also been a user for several other problem-solving workshops and training with Miro as a tool for remote - online support tool.
- Allows large remote teams to simultaneously brainstorm.
- Helps to group ideas and conclude on actions during the workshops.
- Works as a whiteboard and post-its, but has much more advanced functionalities and templates.
- Reduces the time spent on reworking paper whiteboard conclusions.
- Well actually, thanks to Miro, I would say that remote workshopping is more efficient than face-to-face, so it helps us be more time and budget efficient.
- I would ease navigation on a board, newbies sometimes get lost.
- A bit stiff enlarging board functionalities - only 5, 10, and 20% are available.
- In the difficult Covid times, it helped us to still run strategic workshops without delays.
- Reduces travel budget.
- Increased time efficiency (no travel time, no reworking outcomes, live decision-making process visible to every workshop participant and decision-maker.
- Improved decision making.
That was just easy, and people picked it up quickly. In a fun way, we've taught them how to use necessary functionalities, which took us no more than 20 minutes. My teams had fun playing with emojis and pasting photos. I like this efficient yet, people-friendly, tool. What I may advise is that you ensure everyone has access before workshops and you dedicate some time for quick learning.
Miro is just a super intuitive tool. People are learning by doing, and it's easy and does not require special training to introduce it to even a large group of people. I've seen some new functionalities (Teams), but have not used them yet, but I appreciate that the tool is being developed to even better reflect remote working realities.
I think that without Miro we would really struggle to have workshops with over 30 participants, in locations from Russia to Dubai, including Prague, Budapest, Vienna, Warsaw, etc. I now have experience using Miro in many workshops and training. I may say that now I prefer remote workshops with Miro to physical ones, as they are quicker and more efficient for leading people.

Would you buy Miro again?
My best experience is when a large group or groups of people need to solve complex problems and strategize. For this specific purpose, I have not seen better solutions, which allows managing the access to outcomes by access management. I know that other teams/people are also using it for project management, but for this, I've found it too time-consuming as I am still a more pen and paper person.
