Is anyone creating a capability map in Miro? I would like to get in contact with you!
Our thoughts and ideas!Understanding where changes affect the organisation is key to a successful product or service development.We have created a method called the Milky Way, which combines product (value stream), capability (what we do), systems or tools (what we need to be able to do) and information in one map.3 min intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jq__kDY5w1AIt requires that an organisation invest time in understanding what they are doing = created a map. We have created a Miroverse template for that:https://miro.com/miroverse/the-milky-way-enterprise-map/We have also created a Miro Tool to export the data to Airtable, where we further can create more details data for onboarding. And some things in Miro as Layers :-)https://www.milkyway.international/milky-way-toolNot for everyone. But if you invest the time, it will pay off. And yes, there is a book as well: https://www.amazon.com/Milky-Way-navigate-accelerate-change-ebook/dp/B09H61612Y/
Template for Semester Planning
What is everyone using to layout semester long plans?I’ve used frames to orgainze content by topic, I’ve Product Roadmap templates, Frames with items inside of them (which means I have to constantly resize the frame) and am not 100% satisfied with either solution.Some of the key things that I need to do is:Organize materials by week Content needs to be easily moved around as each semester has different holidays Mark tasks as done when they are entered into the LMSThanks for any suggestions you can give!

I just wanted to leave some feedback on the User Story Map template
I've just been trying to use Miro for Story Mapping using the Story Mapping template. It was looking good to start with but after a while when I came to need to organise Activities and items on the backbone row it all just fell apart and I had to give up.The behaviour of the Activity and Backbone row items basically breaks the entire usefulness of the User Story Map template for me. The way I story map, I have Activities at the top, then items on the backbone row form the 'walking skeleton', these are the minimum set of non-optional stories that enable the system to work. To start with items under the backbone might be details or sub-tasks of backbone items, but further down the map, perhaps several release slices down, tasks at that location still relate to the activity, but may not relate directly to whatever task was on the backbone row. These later tasks might represent alternative user journeys through the system, or quality of life improvements for the activity.The problem is tha
'The Virtual Middle Place'
A very insightful study by PwC on #remotework trends. Zooming on the 'physical office' conundrum, it seems like employers and employees have different expectations on what the physical workplace should deliver.In my mind, I can see a promising middle ground that is the hybrid model. Simply because none of those factors quoted by both employers and employees are impossible to achieve while working remotely.What I'm proposing (in fact, a couple of my clients are running away with this idea!) is the concept of 'Virtual Middle Place' (somebody has a snazzier moniker?) It is a hybrid workplace enabled by collaborative and interactive platforms such as Miro, Mural and Stormboard.It is a middle place for an organisation where some people will choose to work from home, some in the office, and most will switch their environments once in a while. A very fluid working environment, yet always connected.Using #virtualmiddleplace, facilitative leadership theories and techniques, I believe I can help

As a PM, how is working remote with your team going?
Last week was the first for our product-dev teams working fully remote! So many adjustments! From our home workspaces, to communication, to coffee-making, lots of routines now look different. On Friday, when we ran the retrospective, we used Mad Sad Glad framework to share our emotions about the new order. Team was mad and sad about things like slow internet speed at home, an unstable working day, too little movement compared to going outside and walking around the office, the uncertainty, and having to cook instead of having snacks at the office But most votes were around the cluster of communication: low level of personal face-to-face communication is new for us, and we miss good old water cooler and coffee chats Though we are replacing them with Zoom coffee chats! Did you read our Ultimate Guide to Remote Work yet? We are learning to work from home together with you
TOTW (June 28, 2022) — Coffee Break Ice Melter
This week, Coffee Break by Magdalena Benavides is the Template Of The Week (or TOTW). It is a fun pre-workshop onboarding activity for new users that helps meeting hosts to know which participants are having trouble with Miro so the host could address it. Do you like this template as much as we do? Leave Magdalena a compliment here, her template on Miroverse, and feel free to share your favorite educational ice breakers in this thread! Voting makes template discovery easier for other members of Miro Community and supports those who are contributing to Miroverse in such a meaningful way. How do we choose TOTW? It’s a mystery! But upvoting helps!
Miro at Agile Ceremonies
Hi Miro Heroes ! Maybe this has been questioned before (but i didn’t found )I use Miro, mostly for Agile Ceremonies and even for PI plannings and other Scrum stages. I would like to enhance Miro. Can you, experienced Miro users, tell me how and when you use it? It really helps within the remote work and narrow the difficulties? How is your team response and feedback regardin Miro ? Did you improve it with personal templates or just follow the basics ? I would love to hear your inputs and improve my own experience! Best regards,Pedro Silva
Virtual Conference in Miro: My Story - My Failure - My Win
Hi there!!! Here’s a solution I came up for a virtual conference...using Miro!! My Story We wanted to replicate the energizing feeling that comes with attending an in-person conference...virtually! I used Design Thinking to work through what challenges (cost, lack of human connection etc..) we needed to solve for and decided to create a prototype in Miro. My Failure After putting quite a bit of time thinking through the solution and crafting the solution, we determined that a less complex approach would be used to accomodate the conference hosts. It felt like a failure because it the new approach did not quite address the challenges we were looking to solve for. My Win I still view this a win because the process allowed us to think through challenges we needed to solve for, especially as this is a repeating event. If you’re thinking about hosting a virtual conference, think no further than Miro.

How I Discovered Miro and Virtual Facilitation Journey
For a world-travelling facilitator and trainer, March 2020 felt like my entire professional world had collapsed. Borders closed, clients either cancelled or postponed engagements, and suddenly my professional calendar looked pretty empty.What can I do when most of my work requires people-to-people engagement and interaction?And then I discovered Miro, and what a journey it has been! Read about my experience and my ‘Top 5 tips to transition into a virtual facilitator’:https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/making-jump-transitioning-virtual-facilitation-isman-tanuri/I’d love to hear your thoughts and your own experience too in the comments. Tell us your stories!
Turn your Miro cards into Asana and Trello tasks!
Hey! I wanted to introduce you all to a new integration from Unito (where I work) that allows you to turn Miro cards into tasks in Asana and Trello and keep them in sync. This way, you can easily move brainstorming or planning sessions over to project management tools once you’re ready to start the work, without losing any context! We launched today, so you can check out all the details on Product Hunt. Plus, to help you get started, here’s a free template you can use to map your product launch lifecycle, and then sync into a project management tool once you’re ready to operationalize it. If you have any feedback, just message me here on the forum or reply to this message :)

Hi Miro Heroes Anna here, your Community Manager. This March, we are celebrating Women’s History Month by hosting a special edition of the Miroverse Challenge, Womxn at Work, and highlighting the most inspiring female creators that contributed templates to our template library.

Shout Outs to Relative Snapping / Alignment
Howdy all - not sure when this feature was introduced, but the relative snapping (adjusting dimensions and having those dimensions match to other like dimensions within the current view) is awesome! The next level would be to do the same for margins :)Real talk, thank you for introducing this feature
☑️ Creating a Miroverse template? Here’s the ultimate checklist
Hey y’all!A while ago, Miroverse champions @Helena Brandist and @Anna Savina initiated a discussion about common pitfalls of first-time Miroverse creators. I figured a checklist might be of some help for people who want to submit templates to Miroverse, since there are a few pretty important things that are easy to miss.Enjoy!https://medium.com/@H_Stahl/creating-a-miroverse-template-heres-the-ultimate-checklist-f5684055825eAnd here’s a TL;DR community version:🛠 Start with a prototype board. When you’re done, copy-paste the content to a fresh board and submit the new board to Miroverse. 🔍 Consider the zoom level! 👑 Establish a dynamic visual hierarchy. 🕵️♀️ Give your template a searchable name (but don’t stuff it with keywords). 🔐 Group and lock shapes. 🏁 Set a start view. 👍 Give your board a nice preview thumbnail. 👩🏫 Add instructions, examples, and facilitator notes. 🗺 Make it easy for people to navigate by numbering sections.Special thanks to @Steven Sampson-Jones, @Emily
Using Miro for an online conference as a message/idea board
I would like to use Miro for an upcoming virtual conference. There will be about 300 attendees, so they will all have their own email addresses. Can I create a board and send them a link to access it and edit it even thought they do not have email addresses with the same domain Name as me?
Competition vs Collab Puzzle
Amira Mustapha Founder and Executive Director of Art Defined Productions Create three groups of people and send them to the three different link locations to complete the puzzle. Ultimately they will realize they need items from each other to solve their puzzle. It a way to show collaboration versus competition More info on how I created the puzzle in Notes
