meetLean Agile Edinburgh is a monthly meet-up group to discuss and share all things lean and agile. All welcome to join! We’re delighted this month’s Lean Agile Edinburgh is taking place during the Agile20Reflect festival, and hope to welcome lots of new faces from around the world.
We are joined this month by Sofia Antonopoulou, the Product Owner for PICAMS at Historic Environment Scotland (HES).
She will tell the story of how HES used agile to support the huge effort of re-opening 300+ national monuments across Scotland during COVID – and here we go again with the second national lockdown…!
PICAMS (Properties in Care Asset Management System) is a bespoke application developed in-house to help HES manage its amazing estate of over 300 historic monuments across Scotland. The PICAMS team uses agile and user-centred approaches to solve problems and develop new digital capabilities for the organisation. From April until August all HES properties had to close in response to the COVID pandemic. Reopening them was a monumental effort under tight timescales, which PICAMS was asked to support. The talk will focus on how the PICAMS team reacted to meet the challenge.
