Strategic Partnering Approach

  • The Strategic Partnering Approach guides the participant through a framework aimed at leveraging a business relationship management (BRM) capability to drive business value, build strategic business partnerships, and evolve enterprise culture.
  • While most organizations have some level of BRM capability, the Strategic Partnering Approach is designed to help business professionals engaging key stakeholders in co-creating a roadmap for reaching and sustaining strategic partnerships that drive increased collaboration and ensure value optimization across the organization.
  • The Strategic Partnering Approach is supported with the Business Relationship Management Playbook’s content, dedicated to enterprise facilitation.
  • The Strategic Partnering Approach serves as an addition to BRM Institute’s current BRM certification programs, BRMP® and CBRM®, which are designed to be delivered and received at an individual level.
  • Any organization that is launching a BRM capability, working to improve its BRM capability, or is interested in taking its successful BRM capability to the next level can benefit from team engagement in Strategic Partnering sessions.
