About Russ

Tell me, I will forget. Show me, I may remember. But involve me, and I will understand…

This ancient Chinese proverb captures the essence of the Agile Mastery Institute. Only through experience, with a guide and mentor, do we truly reach the level of mastery. The agile mastery pathways provide the guidance necessary to truly become a great Scrum Master or Product Owner.

As an experienced Agile Coach and Trainer, I love guiding organisations, leaders and teams to transform themselves to deliver high-quality products and services. I have around 30 years of experience working in various industries, covering internet services, online media, digital broadcasting, telecommunications, Agile training and coaching. I am a CEC and CTC with the ScrumAlliance.org and Accredited Kanban Trainer with the Kanban University.

I operate out of Berlin, Germany, and partner with clients throughout Europe and sometimes further afield. I actively contribute to the Scrum and Lean/Kanban communities and participate in regular events and conferences across Europe.

  • “Strong intrinsic motivator and truly a game changer” is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Russell. As an agile coach Russell earns my highest recommendation and would be an asset to any executive and organization.

    The first German-speaking Scrum Mastery Pathway Guide

    Peter is passionate about helping teams and organizations become better. Offering the Scrum Mastery Pathway for Scrum Master in Switzerland and other “Deutsch” speaking countries is one way for him to achieve this.

    Peter’s goal is to enable each team member to reach their potential and find better ways to work together efficiently. Currently he is working with Scrum Master in Switzerland to support them in creating amazing teams who deliver great products for their teams

    Early in his career, he learned how important it is to have someone coaching and mentoring him. Hence, he now loves to offer the same to individuals new to the world of Agility, be it through coaching, mentoring, or by conducting a training program like the Scrum Mastery Pathway. He also thinks that by giving a course, he, at the same time, is taking the course for himself. 

    “I wanted to say…thank you Peter for setting this training up. It’s so enlightening and valuable not just for work but for my personal life as well.”
