Before you can confidently outline how to create a high-performing BRM team, it’s critical to understand your organizational context and where the BRM capability fits into that.

That’s the way forward, that’s the future, and that’s why BRMs exist.

Your readiness and aptitude to handle this new frontier with ease and confidence will set you apart as a highly-valued professional.
BRMs in a SAFe World…That is, a Scaled Agile Framework Model

BRMs are relationship-centered and have the tools, the skills, the capabilities to be effective on both the people and technology aspects of this work.
