GamingWorks and BRM Institute Announce Global Strategic Alliance
A new global strategic alliance is under way.
GamingWorks and Business Relationship Management Institute are proud to announce the launch of a global strategic alliance between the two organizations, stemming from a mutual commitment to promote the business relationship management (BRM) capability worldwide, help realize business value for organizations, and develop professional skills for individual members of the BRM community.
BRM Institute is the one and only association exclusively dedicated to the membership, professional development, and official certification training of BRM professionals across the globe. GamingWorks is one of the leading developers of ‘experiential learning’ instruments used to support individual, team, and organizational learning and development, based on best-practice approaches such as BRM.
The MOU…will lead to a broader global reach for BRM through the GamingWorks partner network and offer opportunities for BRM training providers and organizations to add business simulations to their BRM competence development initiatives.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between GamingWorks and BRM Institute will lead to a broader global reach for BRM through the GamingWorks partner network and offer opportunities for BRM training providers and organizations to add business simulations to their BRM competence development initiatives.
Director of GamingWorks Paul Wilkinson states, “We are very excited about this partnership. For too long now, organizations have struggled with the “business and IT relationship,” wherein BRM is both a critical and often missing capability needed to enable business and IT convergence so as to ensure maximum business value from IT investments.
As we are seeing the global uptake for BRM increase, we can use our business simulations to help spread awareness of this field and develop practical BRM skills. The simulations fit in naturally with existing BRMP® and CBRM® offerings and can be used by BRMs to build buy-in for the role within their own organizations. When played with both business and provider partners, the simulation can help BRMs shape strategies for improvement.”
BRM Institute and GamingWorks have worked together before in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the Netherlands, and most recently, South Africa and Switzerland to meet the growing demand for business relationship management across industries.
