Enterprise Architecture and BRM: Allies in Strategic Purpose
History has given many examples of great partnerships between those with great ideas and those who drive the ideas to fruition. It is difficult for one person to play both roles, especially in a complex environment in which the problems range from non-trivial at best all the way to dealing with things that have never before been solved.
At the heart of the synergy between Enterprise Architecture and BRM is the EA’s gift at conceiving solutions and the BRM’s ability to breathe life into those solutions.

Since it can be difficult to understand the benefits of intangible value, one question commonly heard by BRMs is:
“How does Business Relationship Management (BRM) and ultimately, Relationshipism, identify recognized value for an organization?”
Relationships and the Rise of the People Platform
In the past, old hierarchies within business organizations traditionally viewed employees as a single, replaceable cog in an enormous machine; a means to an end. Value was placed solely on a predetermined business strategy to be achieved at the lowest possible cost. As a result, the cogs–meaning people–either fit into this strategy or not.
“Sure” Is a Funny Word!
“Sure” is a funny word. When used in conjunction with a possessive pronoun it indicates total conviction – i.e. “I am sure.”
