A Technology Tip

With everyone working from home, I have been looking for better tools to collaborate with my team. I recently found one that is super cool – Miro.

Miro enables users to map out a workflow, brainstorm new ideas or develop a business strategy on a shared online whiteboard. To create a board, you can start with a blank canvas or use a template, such as ones for flowcharts, mind maps, or kanban frameworks.

Once in the whiteboard, it is easy to edit by clicking and dragging boxes, arrows or other shapes, or creating your own sketches with a drawing pencil. You can even add “sticky notes” if you want the traditional feel of a mapping/brainstorming exercise.

To collaborate, you simply invite your team to Miro. There is no need to share the whiteboard via Zoom during your meeting.

Being a budget-conscious entrepreneur, I am still using the free version of Miro. Paid versions look to have even more features.
