Winter's in the air, and there's nothing cooler than our latest template roundup. Whether you're planning the year-end bonanza of the century or working towards a project that'll knock everyone's socks off, we've got just the template to help.

And don't forget to check back next month for a fresh batch of templates just ready to help you get your productivity cookin'.

Big room planning event

Multiple teams can mean mass confusion, but not with our big room planning event template. Use this template to wrangle teams coming together to plan and coordinate their work jointly. This template fosters open communication, aligns team members on priorities, and enables rapid adjustments to project plans in response to changing requirements or circumstances.

Product backlog refinement

Product backlogs hold big potential for your product, but they can get unwieldy quickly. By using the product backlog refinement template regularly, you can keep track of your backlog, prioritize items in your backlog, work backlog tasks into upcoming sprints, and eliminate backlog items that no longer make sense to pursue. Our template even has a built-in meeting agenda to keep things on track.

Sprint planning event

The sprint planning event is a cornerstone within Scrum, so obviously, it needs its own spectacular template. Change the sprint planning event template to your branding colors, then get to work determining an agenda, setting the sprint's goals, and assigning tasks. Voila: Sprint managed, and everyone knows what to do next. This template even includes a team check-in to gauge the group's confidence in completing the goals for the upcoming sprint.

Release planning event

Big picture thinking requires, well, a big picture. A release planning event is a meeting that occurs at the beginning of a new project or before a new release cycle starts. This release planning event template starts with a vibe check, then goes straight into strategic alignment, the product roadmap, and a detailed program board and calendar. There's even a technical reference section where you can drop templates and other resources to help keep your team on the same page. By the end of the event, you'll have the scope of the release, the order of feature delivery, and a rough timeline for completion.

Mind map with sticky notes

Ever feel stuck with the same ideas? A mind map template is a great way of navigating away from the same old synapses and into creation mode. Start with a central theme or idea, then continue branching off into related concepts. Add anything you want to the board,from links to gifs, and create a freeform journey that may yield some encouraging surprises. Our mind map template is a low-stress way of facilitating a holistic and structured overview of complex subjects.
