Strategic Alliance Partners
We are thrilled to announce the launch of a global strategic alliance with International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA), the leading association for business analysis professionals worldwide. This agreement stems from a mutual commitment to building value-add relationships and expanding business outcomes.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between BRM Institute and IIBA will lead to more effective knowledge sharing, improved discipline alignment, and increased support for business analysis professionals and business relationship managers among other stakeholders.
Specifically, the Memorandum of Understanding aims to enhance business value delivery and develop invaluable networking opportunities for professionals and organizations alike, which will significantly strengthen the BRM and BA disciplines.
This new collaboration between BRM Institute and IIBA points to a heightened recognition of the BRM and BA disciplines across the globe as well as a stronger understanding of the value these roles add to the success of organizations.
Stephen Ashworth, President and CEO of International Institute of Business Analysis, said, “In order to expand the reach of BA professionals and the association, we are connecting beyond our own community to support the evolution of the role and impact of business analysis. Bringing together this new alliance and the members of IIBA will ensure the integration of an industry knowledge base, thought leadership, and an expanded portfolio of products and services.”
According to Aaron Barnes, Co-Creator of Business Relationship Management Institute, “As the leading professional organizations committed to developing and disseminating professional best practices and provide thought leadership, BRM Institute and IIBA must collaborate to clearly define interactions between our complementary professional disciplines using shared terminology. The two Institutes join forces to provide a solid mutually agreed approach to improving business value realization in organizations around the globe. In today’s highly collaborative business environments, organizations must leverage their strategic resources including IT, HR, Finance, Facilities, etc. in partnership with the business, to identify and fully realize potential opportunities. BRMs and BAs can play a crucial role in the creation of these strategic partnerships. BRM Institute is excited to collaborate with IIBA bringing the two very important complementary professional disciplines together to support our global communities and assist organizations in driving strong business results.”
