Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is being used by our company to help us clearly map out and brainstorm priorities, as well as use it as a living roadmap. We have leveraged the tool many times during cross-functional problem-solving sessions. This was especially helpful when we were all working from home and didn't have a whiteboard to work with, but is even better as we can continue to leverage it going forward.
  • Clear, visual representations of interconnected work streams.
  • Maintains a living document from a brainstorm session for future edits and reference.
  • Enables easy collaboration through comments and stickies.
  • Suggest improvements to the page layout so it can easily fit on a computer screen.
  • Hide the comment logo when it is blocking text in a box.
  • Improved productivity.
  • Improved cross functional collaboration.
  • Simplified maintenance of records from problem solving sessions.
If this is going to be used broadly in your organization, make sure everyone has login before using it in a session with a broader group.
I was not involved in the integration.
During the pandemic when we were all working from home, we needed to kick off a 2021 planning process across multiple teams. Miro enabled us to run a brainstorming session across multiple time zones and with 20+ attendees in a very efficient manner. It was so successful, even once we were in office, we aligned on continuing to use Miro in person for our major planning sessions.

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

Google Jamboard is helpful for whiteboarding but was highly limited in the available area to work with. It was also much clunkier to use with multiple stakeholders. It was much harder to manage a problem-solving session as we had to jump between pages to see all of the content.
If you need to run a cross-functional planning session with teams in multiple locations, I highly recommend using Miro. It makes collaboration simple, and people can add comments and notes on the board just as if they were in person. I think this is less suited for ongoing project management tasks, as it is more suited for helping to visualize things vs. tracking them.
