But don’t just take our word for it, here’s why 350,000+ people have already signed up
To facilitate meaningful conversations that drive results
“There are usually so many different topics and paths we could take the conversation down, but with Parabol, the time we have together is organized and endorsed/voted on by participants in real-time. It is also tremendously helpful from a documentation standpoint with the digest at the end that goes to participants’ emails.”
“The meeting basically runs itself – allowing facilitators to focus on the content of the conversations and driving forward the conversation. An invaluable tool. It has all the necessary tools in one place – timers, cards, agenda, and it allows asynchronous brainstorming before you even get in a room together (in-person or digitally)”
“Parabol makes retrospectives and other types of brainstorm-cluster-discuss types of meetings really smooth. This tool makes it easy to get a lot done fast, even more effectively than on a board with sticky notes.”
“I have been using Parabol for retrospectives for several years and with multiple teams. The icebreakers and various retro templates help foster new conversations, and keep our meetings fun and engaging. Parabol is the most comprehensive, yet simple tool I have found”
To run structured meetings, saving time for you and your teams
“Parabol has made our retrospectives so much smoother. Now our retros have more structure, are easier to follow, and involve less work.”
“I love Parabol. I learned about it a few years ago, and have been an advocate ever since. I love how simple it is to set up and run retros, and how it creates a summary all on its own.”
“Meetings are effortless to set up, and the different options are great for making each retrospective unique. It is also great to be able to go back to the previous meetings and see all the ideas and conversations around them.”
“Parabol helps bring structures to my meetings, providing an easy platform to solicit feedback and, more importantly, follow up on action items after the fact.”
To inject fun into collaborative work with your teammates
Does “fun” matter in the software development world? I’d like to think so! And Parabol is that and more. It’s intuitive, easy on the eyes and comes pre-baked with dozens of retro ideas from some of the greatest hits to a few I’ve never heard of before (and I try to read up on retro formats quite a bit). Parabol is a pleasure to use.
Even using it with 20+ participants we have a blast! Before that, we tried digital sticky note solutions but only Parabol provided us with every step of a proper retro being represented by a useful integrated functionality. From Ice-Breakers through the reflection phase to the voting, everything is covered in a mindful and smart way. We’re also trying to use it in Poker Plannings which so far has accelerated the process by a lot through its Jira integration.
To seamlessly connect remote and distributed teams for effective teamwork
“Parabol’s workflow is perfectly done, leading the team to get the tasks at the end of the meeting on the things the team has to improve in the next sprint. Its usage and interface is very friendly and easy to be used.”
“It enables us to run smooth retros with our remote teams and customize the flow to our specific needs. It also centralizes action items for easy reference, and integrates with our work tools like Jira and Github. Adoption is easy and intuitive: no change management skills required, your team will love it.”
To effortlessly adopt a new tool without the hassle of change management
“Ease of use. Very pleasent to look at and work with. Minimalistic approach. Availability of ways to do a retro with lots of templates.”
“I like the ability to seamlessly add thoughts, group them and vote on them. Icebreakers are handy and not overdone/cheesy. The interface is slick and easy to use.”
“Retrospective meetings are properly done in a highly productive manner. It’s simple, easy to use, and very easy to track progress on actionable items. – We love 💜 Parabol”
“It’s easy to use, the templates they have cover 99.9% of situations, and you can create your own templates. You can have a meeting running in seconds.”
