Agile vs. BRM: What’s the Difference?
BRM is like the compass, responsible for determining the long-term direction and strategy of the organization to ensure the ship arrives at port. Agile strategies are like the sails, responsible for making quick course adjustments to generate value.
On the Ground: BRM Operations at Purdue
Observing a BRM team actively building strategic relationships with faculties, and generating results was truly inspiring. During the open house, for instance, the BRMs were interacting with researchers, staff and the interim dean. I am sure new ideas were formed about how IT could even do more for the faculty. At the end of the day, I sat down with the team and recorded a podcast episode to be published in the next couple of months.
Workshop Simulation: Business & IT Convergence
A recent workshop, hosted by GamingWorks, focused on Business & IT convergence and the capability of BRM. In this workshop, we aimed to surprise and inspire the attendees with events throughout the day to give participants a true understanding of why Business & IT convergence instead of alignment is necessary.
Recognized Value Equals Value Embodied
By defining and understanding Recognized Value, BRMs support their businesses from the foundation to the rafters. A Recognized Value = communicated value + perceived value + measurable value of any process, operation or contribution.
Develop Trust To Build Value
Increasing internal communication is so crucial to increasing value for our partners and their continued trust. When things break down or fail (and they will), trust is damaged, and value is greatly diminished. When we work better together, customers feel safe making more demands because they recognize value and they know, even when something goes wrong, we will learn from it and put measures in place to prevent future occurrences.

Growing a BRM Strategy Garden
The result of this convergence is powerful indeed, yet the truth is this was not done from one day to the other. It took me years. The Business Relationship Management DNA helped me to work and develop Business Relationship Maturity Model at levels 4 and 5. The BRM Maturity Model in my experience on this project left me with distinct insights at every step, which I have summarized below.

The Mozart of Communication
There are truly so many parallels to draw between an orchestrator and a BRM which, when followed, could help cultivate effective and efficient meetings with amazing results! The following steps are my personal reflections of what I believe are steps in the right direction:
