Business relationship management is a capability designed to stimulate, surface, and shape business demand across all functions (business units, value streams, sales, marketing, technology, HR, finance, etc.) and ensure that the potential business value from satisfying that demand is captured, optimized, and recognized. A strong BRM capability converges cross-functional teams and eliminates value-depleting organizational silos. It strengthens collaboration and drives a culture of creativity, innovation, and shared ownership across the enterprise so that holistic, innovative, and value-driven strategies are created and deliver their intended business value results.
