Should you be thinking about applying the BRM capability, framework and role externally, and why?


Does retaining partnerships, achieving optimized value and gaining loyalty and competitive advantage sound nice to you?


Does the thought of applying an external capability pique your interest?


Are you looking to increase business maturity with your external partners?

In today’s business world, organizations are being disrupted and finding themselves in a market with new competitors they didn’t necessarily have before. Strategic partnerships and trustworthy relationships drive business and society forward. Furthermore, we can achieve wild success as we move away from a solely internal model to one that includes the entire relationship lifecycle.  

External BRM Capability Advancement

We are a group of passionate BRMs on a journey of advancing the BRM capability externally. We are looking to build friendships, share experiences, innovate and pioneer with other passionate BRMs to further develop the BRM capability.

This resonates so deeply with us, and for that reason we are pleased to introduce you to the newest BRM Institute’s Community of Interest, “Advancing the External BRM Capability”, recently formed at the World BRMConnect 2019 conference in NOLA. If this sounds enticing to you, please join our community today!

*Please note: only professional members can officially join the community. Be on the lookout on our events calendar and social media for upcoming events!
