Knowledge for Every BRM

Here is a glimpse of sessions you can expect to attend at BRMConnect!*


BRM Metrics

Establish the seven core metrics for BRM performance today and review the bigger list of metrics for BRM performance over time.

Product Management and BRM

Organizations are moving from a focus of internal service providers to products and capabilities. As products and capabilities are leveraged across an organization, the focal point of accomplishments is the value coming out of the relationships utilizing the product or capabilities. Learn what product management is, what the product manager role is/does, and how BRMs and Product Managers work together to drive great results.

Shared Ownership

Converging teams creates a partnership among various business functions. It empowers different functions to share ownership for creating, delivering, and capturing both business and community (people) value.

Become a Trusted Advisor in 1 Hour

A successful business partner meeting will transition the individual BRM from an outside function to a trusted advisor in just 1 hour. During this hour BRMs must demonstrate that they exist to ensure the success of the business partner.

Value Management/Plan

Value Management is a holistic and comprehensive approach to Ideation, Value Planning, Portfolio Management, and the Business Case. It allows organizations to capture, optimize, and communicate the business value of Provider investments and capabilities.

Ideation / Idea Document

Ideation is a strategic decision-making approach which manages the progress of new ideas from conception to recognized business value. Ideation / Idea Documentation may be used for any of the following: a potential solution to a business problem, a new opportunity for the organization.

Communication Plans

Let’s get clear! Define exactly what and when information needs to be communicated from a BRM and/or a BRM team to the executive level.

Strategic Relationship Plan

Business partners must articulate the vision, current status, and value coming out of converged relationships. They must maintain a simple, historical perspective of the business unit or value stream. A strategic relationship plan provides the framework for these deliverables.


BRM Competency Assessment

Review the BRM competency assessment, learn where your BRM capability sits and how to improve immediately.

Relationship Strategy on a Page (RSOAP)

The RSOAP addresses the strategy a BRM will create for developing the relationship with his or her Business Partner. It is a variation on the Strategy on a Page.

Creativity / Innovation Center

Demand Shaping

Establishing the Top-Level Goal for Your Function

Do you know your function’s purpose? Do you know why it exists inside the organization? Helping your functional leaders understand why and how to move from siloed functions to fully converged strategic partners with shared ownership of strategy and results. 



As the heart of BRM, relationships drive new means of value creation and move organizations from command and control to connect and collaborate.
