Overall Satisfaction with Miro

In my organization Miro is used as a co-creation and brainstorming tool for teams that are either distributed over multiple sites or cannot meet directly because of Covid19 measures.
  • Miro works across different systems and browsers.
  • Miro is easily assessable to new users.
  • Miro runs in a stable way without hugging system resources.
  • Miro boards can become very large making it difficult to find the main points. Maybe better-highlighting tools or finishing tools could help.
  • Often people work in parallel rather than together.
  • I've sometimes experienced issues logging into shared boards.
  • Miro has helped teams with staying in touch while working from home during Covid.
  • Miro has helped teams in different time zones to co-create.
The implementation is solid and accessible.
As a browser-based tool, Miro is easy to integrate into heterogeneous teams. It works well across different devices and different browsers. Unlike other cooperation tools (e.g. MS Teams) it works in a responsive and stable way even on slower devices or networks.
Miro is a useful tool in the cooperation toolbox. It cannot replace face-to-face meetings, especially on new projects and fresh teams, but it can be a useful complement to (and sometimes a replacement for) conference calls. Because it's easily accessible it can be used in new teams without a long learning curve.

Miro is a solid tool for online cooperation but it cannot recreate the energy and dynamics of real face-to-face interactions. Therefore it is probably most useful in situations where people work in parallel or sequentially on the same project. In cases where larger teams are expected to co-create and interact with each other, it helps to have a video link and strong guidance in place.
