how to plan for success with miro

Planning to revamp your website, organize a charity drive, or maybe a spring picnic with friends? According to PMI the success of your project is highly dependent on the planning stage. Research shows a strong correlation between planning and success, even when spending as little as only 20% of your time on planning. Spending that extra time in the beginning to prepare for anyl possible scenario could save your picnic from the rain and your project from derailing.

This time we’re turning to our community to find out new interesting ways to plan with Miro.

Below we feature six templates from our community, created to ensure your cross-functional project team and stakeholders have the same vision and expectations.
