        About Rohit

        A passion to support others in their Scrum Master training UK learning journey has inspired me to become The Scrum Mastery Pathway Guide. I believe that this program is different to any I have experienced before as it is focused on exploring Scrum Master’s behavioural change of being respected, enabler, nurturing and empathic rather than a framework. This pathway is a 6 month-long journey on mastery based on Geoff Watts’ book Scrum Mastery.

        The past few years have been about finding self. During this period, I have come to realise the “Meaning of life“. It is about making the lives of others better. Either through coaching or mentoring or teaching or just being there when they need me.

        This self-awareness has got me into learning more about professional coaching with Abhyudaya, Global Coach Circle and becoming a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I am now providing Executive, Leadership and Life Coaching services. The coaching process is designed to help you achieve your personal and professional goals with support and being a partner in the process. It is about finding “self” and attaining greater fulfilment. You can book coaching sessions with me here.

        Learning my own way to become a Professional Coach, I understand the importance of a dedicated pathway to reach the potential of mastery. I will be using the experience and knowledge I gained working as a Professional Coach, Scrum Master and an Agile Coach to train new Scrum Masters within an organisation or through public classes.

        The pathway is based on using exploration and curiosity to enhance learning in a group. You can book a course in a completely new way to become a great Scrum Master here. You will find more information on the link.

        Rohit's Testimonials

        • Rohit is the ultimate peoples person. Above all else, I’ve found he prioritises people and that is just so important during an Agile transition. Even when he was up against it, he focused on us and how we could get through the challenges we faced. For that, I am very grateful.

          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.

          • "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.
