Course Objective

The BRM Role is a crucial link between a service provider and the business acting as a connector, orchestrator, and navigator between the service provider and one or more business units.

Business Relationship Management Professional (BRMP®) training is a world-class professional development program designed to provide a solid foundation-level knowledge of Business Relationship Management. The BRMP® exam is designed to test an individual’s learning through rigorous examination providing a leading verifiable benchmark of BRM professional acumen and achievement.

Business Relationship Management (BRM) embodies a set of competencies (knowledge, skills, and behaviors) to foster an effective business value-producing relationship between a service provider and its business partners. These competencies can be leveraged through organizational roles (e.g., in an IT organization, the CIO typically has a role of BRM for the enterprise), a discipline (e.g., all business partner facing service provider roles should be skilled in Business Relationship Management), and an organizational capability (e.g., a service provider organization should be effective in shaping and channeling demand to the highest business value opportunities).
