  • Chris is an excellent agile trainer and an empathetic and extremely effective coach. Most importantly, he created a safe environment for us to speak up by being a person ‘safe’ to talk to – even frankly with fears and concerns.

      Robin looks to put the ‘fun’ into addressing and removing ‘dys-fun-ctions’ through the use of creative tools, techniques and analogies. He is now taking this a step further by delivering Scrum Master training with LEGO as a medium for learning, helping to create the building blocks of skills and knowledge in those that attend his courses.

      Robin began his Agile journey as a Product Owner in 2011 with zero knowledge of Agile or Scrum. This role proved to be pivotal in his career, setting him off in a new direction. After experiencing a new approach to getting work ‘done’, he did not look back embracing a new way of working. Now he wants to help and guide you on your journey.

      Robin is an experienced Agile Coach and Scrum Master. He has worked with a variety of organisations across multiple sectors helping them to visualise current processes and practices, identify areas for continuous improvement and deliver agile training, which has led to him delivering Scrum Master training with LEGO.

      Robin is passionate about supporting individuals, teams and organisations on their Agile journey and is now supporting the growth of Scrum Masters through the Scrum Mastery Pathway. But that’s not the only Agile training that Robin offers, he also supports the development of Product Owners through the Product Mastery Pathway.

      • The Explorer workshop was an engaging training course, with open discussions, exercises and self-reflection time. I have come away wanting to adapt and incorporate some of these into my ways of working with my Scrum Team. It was much better than typical classroom training.

      • The opportunity to engage in ten further fortnightly follow-up sessions with our cohort provided a valuable forum to discuss the real-life experiences and challenges of fulfilling the Scum Master role, far beyond what can be covered in a few days of intensive training. I welcomed the advice and guidance of our facilitator and guide Robin, and the willingness of the group to dig-into their Sprint-to-Sprint experiences.

      • "Robin is an empathetic trainer with tonnes of experience and knowledge. Through his creative, enthusiastic, and down to earth approach, Robin has helped me to better understand complex problems, and enabled me to succeed in my role as a Scrum Master”

        Lukasz M

        Agile Coach

      • "Robin is an excellent trainer and coach. His knowledge and expertise is un-matched but what sets him apart is the respect and compassion with which he works with others. It feels great to work with someone who can empathise with us and empower us with knowledge that helps us excel in our role as SM. Plus, there's never a session with Robin where you wouldn't learn something new and fun!"

        Who is Martin Lambert?

        Martin is a Scrum Master mentor who has been involved with Scrum since 2010 and has worked closely with over 50 teams as Scrum Master or Agile Coach in the Digital domain.

        Martin loves  spinning up a new team and guiding them in their use of Scrum, Kanban and general agile thinking.  He also takes on the role of agile coach – where he focuses on helping the organisation’s leaders make the changes needed to free their peoples’ potential.  

        Martin chose to use the Scrum Mastery Pathway as a vehicle for his Scrum Master mentoring because of his belief in the importance of helping Scrum Masters reach their potential, enjoy their job, and be the change agent the role originally envisaged.  

        “I know the importance of real-world experience,” he says.  “This is why you will still see me working hands on in a team. You’ve never seen it all, and those essential attributes of being respected, empowering and adaptable need to be continuously worked. I can’t teach it with integrity, if I’m not living it. “

        This recency of practice means Martin has a genuine appreciation of the scenarios faced by the Scrum Masters he mentors, and the Navigator sessions in particular are well grounded in real world experience.

        You can find Martin, along with his instinctive pragmatism, straight talk, honest answers and frank reflections, in South Lakeland, Cumbria. 

        Join him on the Scrum Mastery Pathway in the North of England, or from anywhere remotely.



        • Martin is a man of integrity and determination who applies a pragmatic approach. What would be the right course of action in this particular situation? (as opposed to following a rule book). As a relatively newly qualified Scrum Master, I was able to benefit enormously from Martin's example of how to adapt and deliver Scrum in an environment where not all stakeholders were advocates of the agile framework.

          Who is James Farley?

          As an Agile Consultant, I serve teams and organisations as Scrum Master, Product Owner, or Agile Coach (albeit that I will forevermore avoid holding SM and PO acountabilities for the same team).

          I am also a licensed ProKanban trainer, as well as being a guide for AMI’s Scrum and Product Mastery Pathways, and will always be on a relentlessly journey to continuously improve myself.  (I even have a Kanban board, complete with WIP limits, to manage focus my personal development.) Currently, my CPD focus is on deepening coaching skills (progressing through ICAgile’s Expert Agile Coach learning track & practicing more with Clean Language), and also experimenting with Flight Levels in organisations.

          With plenty of ‘ups’ (eg. rare life experiences in an elite military team) and ‘downs’ (eg, legal battles with a customer, essentially due to business change shortfall), my career path has shaped me into someone who is deeply committed to assisting others in their professional journeys.
