Overall Satisfaction with Miro

At my current client, Miro is mainly used as a tool to prepare and facilitate agile ceremonies, e.g., planning and retros. Scrummasters and RTEs prepare the boards, which are then used in large-scale online meetings by the other roles. We write requirements, suggestions, and short summaries of user stories on notes and then place them in the appropriate swim lanes. Dependencies are marked by connecting notes in the swim lanes of different teams.
  • Boards with a large number of participants
  • Ease of use
  • Large variety of objects to place on the board
  • Performance of the desktop app is not very good, we prefer the browser version
  • Especially beginners often accidentally change or delete objects
  • Shorter time for well prepared meetings
Miro has enabled meeting types such as PI Plannings for large SAFe Trains even in a time of remote working.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?

Yes

Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

Miro is well suited to use with prepared boards in a focussed meeting. In larger groups with no clear objective, things have a tendency to get chaotic - e.g., "Where do I have to put this sticker?" "What color is my team supposed to use?" "Which object do we have to look at now?". Here, Miro could benefit from more options to steer the flow of a meeting.
