Run better retrospectives
Invite everyone to look back on projects and identify successes and failures. With Miro, it’s easy to run a retrospective to discuss current roadblocks and come up with new, optimized workflows together as a team.
Why Miro is the tool for your retrospective
Miro’s visual collaborative platform helps create a safe space for your team to give their input. Make sure everyone has a say with the private mode feature, and invite your crew to work with you in real time or async.
No more boring retros
Use one of our ready-made templates every time you need to run your retrospective, or build one from scratch using our many editing features. Turn your retrospectives into dynamic sessions with icebreakers and other interactive features such as reactions and voting.
Cluster topics quicker
Bring agility to your retrospective meeting by clustering the stickies into groups. On your retrospective board, you can cluster by color, tag, author, keyword, and sentiment or create your own topic cluster. After selecting stickies, click on the Cluster object icon on the context menu.
Take action with tool integrations
Turn your retrospective feedback into actionable points with bulk conversion of sticky notes into Jira cards, and a set plan so you don’t get stuck on old issues. Easily assign tasks to teammates and track them independently, receiving notifications as soon as tasks get resolved by syncing your board with Jira, Azure, or Asana.

Why should I use Miro to create a retrospective?
Miro’s collaborative platform has many features that help you to run engaging, fun retrospective meetings without the hassle of switching tools to review the successes and challenges of a project, sprint, or quarter. Miro’s retrospective boards are easy to create and share, so you and your team can collaborate and track progress quicker than ever.
When should a retrospective meeting be held?
To track team health and improve processes, run retrospective meetings whenever you finish a sprint, project, or quarter. It’s a great way to keep tabs on how efficient your workflows are and the challenges teams face daily. Miro’s retrospective tool helps create a comfortable and safe space, so everyone can give feedback without reproach or criticism. Use the voting feature to evaluate the most pressing topics and ask for feedback, so everyone’s opinion is heard. And remember, the retrospective meeting should be planned ahead of time and include a facilitator who can guide the conversation and help the team focus on the right topics.
What are the three retrospective questions?
A retrospective board helps teams reflect on their past performance and identify areas of improvement. The three key questions often asked during a retrospective are: What went well? What could have gone better? How should we do it differently? Asking these questions encourages teams to take a step back, evaluate their past performance, and quickly take action. Using a retrospective tool helps to ensure that the team is continuously learning and growing. Afterward, you have the means to create actionable points and develop a plan to implement changes and iterate processes.
