Better decisions, fewer meetings.

Murmur is where companies who care about culture make their most important decisions.

Our docs are so out of date they’re virtually useless. What can we do about that?

But don't take it from us...

If you just want to talk about it, have a meeting. If you want a decision made, put it in Murmur.
Stephen Reed
Head of Delivery
Murmur is the tool that's helped glue together the principals of decision making that we wanted to have. It's made the decision making process transparent, clean, easy, fun and successful.

I'd recommend the tool to others who are looking to simplify the way they make decisions. The two killer features for me are the "safe to try" pathways and that agreements expire & can be re-assessed to prevent them becoming stale.

It's now if you just want to talk about it have a meeting, if you want a decision made on it "put it in Murmur".

Murmur is enabling us to make sure everyone understands what we are doing from a process perspective, and more importantly why we are doing it.
Michael Helbling
Managing Partner at Stacked Analytics
I love what Murmur is doing for our organization. Murmur is enabling us to make sure everyone understands what we are doing from a process perspective, and more importantly why we are doing it. As a fast growing company we are constantly needing to make sure we are making excellent choices for the long term, and Murmur makes creating standards and process transparent. This is giving us much better alignment on what really matters as we grow. So often this work is constrained to a small team at the top, and with Murmur we are getting input that makes our operations work smoothly and is better understood by everyone.

Everyone on the team quickly came to see the value of the Murmur method: fewer meetings derailed by decision-making minutiae.

As a co-owner of a startup worker cooperative, I needed something that would help us make crystal-clear agreements without relying on a manager or CEO. Murmur has been so easy to use—even though it was unfamiliar at first, everyone on the team quickly came to see the value of the Murmur method: fewer meetings derailed by decision-making minutiae, plenty of space for each person to give their input, and no more processes falling through the cracks as the agreements are there for everyone to review anytime.

Murmur has been the answer to our prayers — a platform that finally makes it easy to develop and update our working agreements.
Anna Donaldson
Founder and CEO of Lively
After muddling along with shared docs over a number of years, Murmur has been the answer to our prayers - a platform that finally makes it easy to develop and update our working agreements. The best part for us has been the way the platform keeps the process moving - over the space of just a few agreements going through the Murmur process, we've seen a real shift in mindset within our team from 'we need to wait for everyone to weigh in / approve' (which gets slow!) to 'if you care enough to weigh in, make sure you do... if not, things are moving forward'. It's still early days for us, but we're excited about further integrating Murmur into our team's workflows.

I highly recommend Murmur to any team that gets 'stuck' working.
Allan Ng
COO of Chaia Tacos
It's been wonderful using Murmur. It's allowed my team to understand and agree at the same pace. I highly recommend Murmur to any team that gets 'stuck' working. As you use Murmur more, proposers slow down to make sure what they are asking is clear and the rest of the team a safe space to question and make suggestions without the pressure of time and other teammates.

Decisions, not documents.

Murmur doesn't have static documents. It has a process — for new ideas and collaborative decisions.

Murmur helps your whole team make better, faster decisions.

Elevate everyone’s ideas

People burnout and quit when they don’t believe things will change.

Invite your team to propose and activate solutions to the decisions they care about most — so everyone is involved in making change happen.

Move forward faster

Waiting around for consensus leaves your team... waiting around.

Align your team through a 3-round process that asks everyone: “Is this safe to try?” — so even when you disagree, you can still make progress together.

Keep decisions fresh

No one should have to deal with outdated sh*t.

Set an expiration date, collect feedback, and propose changes to decisions — so your team is constantly learning and consistently improving.

Wait... what belongs in Murmur?

All the big decisions that help your business grow, without endless Slack debates or the sinking sense of "didn't we talk about this before?"

Without Murmur...

No process: just a jumbled mess of comments
No time limit: chase people until you give up or they do
No expiration: decisions are never (ever) revisited
No learning: never look back to see how things turned out
No focus: decisions get lost in a sea of documentation

With Murmur...

Process: ask questions, offer suggestions, make a decision
Time limit: the process moves on with or without the laggards
Expiration: extend, change, or archive on your chosen rhythm
Learning: collect feedback, then propose changes
Focus: a single source of truth for all your decisions

Wherever a decision is first discussed, Murmur is there to help.

With so many tools, it’s easy to miss what matters. That’s why Murmur integrates with the products you already use and the workflows that power them.

Never miss an important decision again.

Decentralization without constraints is just chaos

Frens, building a DAO is hard. You need clarity and coherence, but not at the expense of creativity and emergence.

Voting will only get you so far. You need a way to distribute authority to the pods, squads, or circles that are unlocking your DAO’s vision.

Better decisions are the key.

The future of work has arrived — and it’s here to stay.

Trust us, we literally wrote the book on this stuff.

We’re building Murmur so every team can experiment with how they work together — testing, learning, and scaling new ideas every day.

We hope to see you there.
