About the Stickies Pack
Sticky notes can help your team gather data and insights during brainstorming, workshop, or retrospective sessions. Sticky note packs also form the basis of many UX group processes, such as ideation, affinity diagramming, and design thinking.

What are stickies packs
Pre-labeled sticky packs enable you to keep track of research, identify knowledge gaps and growth areas, and keep ideas concise.
Sticky note packs are useful for keeping meetings and workshops on task because they drive action (recording thoughts) rather than relying on talk alone as a way to share ideas. By adding participant names to sticky notes, team members are encouraged to contribute to group activity, and stay present and accountable by taking ownership of their ideas.
When to use stickies packs
There are no set rules (or right way”) for using sticky notes – use them according to your team dynamics and your project's context.
These sticky notes can help cross-functional teams (not just designers!):
Quickly collect different ideas and group together similar ideas
Make sense of a complex system using lo-fi methods
Get colleagues, clients, or stakeholders thinking, sharing, and generating ideas at speed
Encourage everyone to try new and different methods or tools
Combine your team’s collective intelligence into a single common visual space
Prioritize ideas and convert them into action items
Turn handwritten notes into digital stickies
Sticky notes can’t replace process, strategy, or high-fidelity methods – instead, they help you start scrappy and make sure everyone on your team (regardless of personality type or place in an organizational chart) has a voice and perspective to share.
Apply your stickies packs to other Miro templates
Using your own stickies packs is easy. Miro’s whiteboard tool is the perfect canvas to create and share them. Get started by selecting the Stickies Packs Template, then take the following steps to use them on other templates as needed.
Decide what type of activity would benefit your team. You can choose a premade template for any team activity or group session from.
Copy over the sticky pack to your preferred Miro template. Select all elements on the board using the Ctrl+A/Cmd+A shortcut. Navigate to the Miro Board that you’ve set up for a group session, and use Ctrl+V/Cmd+V to paste the stickies pack. Duplicate the stickies pack as needed by using Ctrl+D/Cmd+D as needed to accommodate new participants joining your session.
Ask your colleagues to label their sticky packs with their names. Each sticky note in a pack comes labeled with a “participant” text box. You can edit this box to include your name to keep everyone's ideas or contributions attributed.
Start your group session. You’re all set to get started! If this is a timeboxed group session, you may benefit from using a to keep your ideation or brainstorming on track.

3x3 Prioritization Method Template
It’s all about assessing a task or idea, and quickly deciding the effort it will take and the potential impact it will have—ranked low, medium, or high. That’s what the 3x3 prioritization method does: Help teams prioritize and identify quick wins, big projects, filler tasks, or time-wasters. With nine bucket areas, it offers slightly greater detail than the 2x2 Prioritization Matrix (or Lean Prioritization Method). It’s easy to make your own 3x3 prioritization matrix—then use it to determine what activities or ideas to focus on with your valuable resources.
5 Whys Template
Ready to get to the root of the problem? There’s no simpler way to do it than the 5 Whys technique. You’ll start with a simple question: Why did the problem happen? Then you’ll keep asking, up to four more times, until the answer becomes clear and you can work toward a solution. And Miro’s features enhance the approach: You can ask team members questions in chat or @mention them in comments, and use color-coded sticky notes to call out issues that are central to the problem at hand.
3 Horizons of Growth Template
Featured in The Alchemy of Growth, this model gives ambitious companies a way to balance the present and the future—in other words, what’s working in the existing business and what emerging, possibly-profitable growth opportunities lie ahead. Then teams across the organization can make sure that their projects map to and support the organization’s goals. The 3 Horizons of Growth model is also a powerful way to foster a culture of innovation—one that values and depends on experimentation and iteration—and to identify opportunities for new business.
Status Report Template
A status report provides a snapshot of how something is going at a given time. You can provide a status report for a project, a team, or a situation, as long as it emphasizes and maps out a project’s chain of events. If you’re a project manager, you can use this report to keep historical records of project timelines. Ideally, any project stakeholder should be able to look at a status report and answer the question, “Where are we, and how did we get here?” Use this template as a starting point to summarize how something is progressing against a projected plan or outcome.
T-Charts can help you compare and contrast two different ideas, group information into different categories, and prove a change through “before” and “after” analysis. T-Charts are visual organizational tools that enable you to compare ideas, so you can evaluate pros and cons, facts and opinions, strengths and weaknesses, or big-picture views versus specific details. Designers and content creators can use T-Charts to turn possibilities into actionable ideas. T-Charts are useful for discussing differences and similarities with your team or clients and can help you to reach a decision together.
Product Canvas Template
Product canvases are a concise yet content-rich tool that conveys what your product is and how it is strategically positioned. Combining Agile and UX, a project canvas complements user stories with personas, storyboards, scenarios, design sketches, and other UX artefacts. Product canvases are useful because they help product managers define a prototype. Creating a product canvas is an important first step in deciding who potential users may be, the problem to be solved, basic product functionality, advanced functionalities worth exploring, competitive advantage, and customers’ potential gain from the product.
