Hi Everyone! After a few conversations today with other members of the community, I realized that not everyone knows about the Virtual Miro User Group Events! These events (VMUG for short) are organized by region, which currently consists of North American (NORAM) and Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA). An Asia-Pacific region is likely to start very soon as well.Many of you have likely seen me actively contributing to the Miro Community via posts on this forum, but my primary contribution has been through helping to create the VMUG events and hosting the NORAM events with my colleague and fellow NORAM User Group Leader @Annie. You can attend these 60-90 minute sessions live at their appointed time, or by watching the event recordings after the fact. The topics for discussion are generated by guest speakers, and so attendees have a great opportunity to learn about a specific topic (such as Cognitive Diversity, Gamification, Agile, Lean, Facilitation, Conversations, etc.), or learn how o

Wanted to share our next community V-MUG "Learn a Triad of Agile Techniques With Miro!" with @Kiron Bondale happening Tuesday, June 23rd at 3:00pm PST. It'll be a fun and interactive event catered around learning agile techniques with an informative collaborative element! Whether you are part of an agile team or leading one: This session will teach you how to use Miro to help your team make decisions, size work items in the backlog and understand the many benefits provided by a flow-based delivery approach over a traditional batch-based method.

Okay, well not exactly. @Jeremy Pollack, Solution Principal at Slalom Consulting and Miro’s very own Customer Success Guru, Iris Latour let us in on how their Miro boards encompass an entire project and evolve from planning to ideation to final products all in one commonplace to create a second brain! Check out the video recording! Here are some questions from the V-MUG. Feel free to chime in! How would you characterize your corporate culture - pre-Miro and post Miro - any changes/differences?

Hey everyone, here’s another recap! We had our 4th NORAM V-MUG on February 19th with Natalie Mandriko, Product Manager at WeatherBug presenting. Natalie presented a few real-world examples of Miro boards she and her design team have created in the past. These boards helped to synthesize the qualitative research and engage teams to take action. Here are a couple of questions that were presented during this V-MUG. Would love your input: 1. One of the values of affinity diagramming in a physical space is the unspoken social queues that come from people in a space to keep things constructive. How do yo manage this dynamic in an asynchronous tool like Miro? 2. What information is most important, the volume of comments related to a particular theme, or the impact of the ideas?
