About The Agile Consultancy

Martin Rice

Martin is a highly capable business leader whose main focus is getting the right teams, solving the right problem, using processes that enable, rather than restrain.

As the CEO of an innovative start up, Martin and his team won the Computer Weekly best place to work in IT award. This was achieved through actioning on, rather that paying lip service to, a deep seated belief that the people are the greatest asset and have to treated as such. 

Passionate and outspoken about innovation, Martin helps cut through the political and social barriers that often preclude its uptake

Phil Rice 

As a Chartered Engineer, Phil has over 25 years designing, architecting and developing mission critical, massively scalable, high availability software systems.

Phil is very focused on solving the right problems, not necessarily the explanation of the problem initially given in the brief. This has led him to seek out development processes and techniques that dealt with the real 'changing' world, rather than following what had become the standard heavy weight waterfall processes.

With a strong focus on Test Driven Development, Phil develops and mentors highly effective agile development teams, that solve real world problems. He also develops Open Source tools that help to automate many of the practices of Test Driven Development
