BRM Newsletter – November 2023

BRM Newsletter – November 2023

Barkley Consulting Group

Hello Colleague,

Welcome to our November BRM Newsletter! It is hard to believe we are in the holiday season already, and 2024 is just around the corner. It is incredible how fast this year has gone by. Hopefully, it has been a great one for you.

We have been busy here at Barkley Consulting Group since our last newsletter. I delivered keynote presentations at the BRM Connect Conference in Portland, OR, and the SMFS Conference in Zurich, Switzerland. We most recently spent time with the BRM Community in the UK, where some great things are happening on the BRM front. And we have been traveling around the US and the world delivering the High-Performing BRM class to aspiring and seasoned BRMs.

Our newsletter this month has some interesting resources that I hope you find helpful, including:

  • The video and presentation deck of the BRM Connect Keynote Presentation entitled “Vision 2030: The Vision, The Impact, The Dream”
  • My latest article on Why BRM is Needed to Transform IT, which you can read below. This article covers why BRM is so critical to IT and how we get others in IT Management to appreciate BRM and the impact it makes on an organization.

The High-Performing BRM class remains a hot commodity, not only for experienced BRMs but beginners as well. We have now delivered the class to more than 600 BRMs. We are seeing BRMs bring others in IT (business analysts, project managers, architects, etc.) to the class so they get the same training and come to appreciate the value and importance of BRM.

If you haven’t been able to attend a session yet, we have virtual classes in December, January, March, and May. We also deliver in-person classes for organizations and have quite a few scheduled for the remainder of the year. You can get all the details below.

If you have any questions or want to talk more about BRM, please respond to this newsletter and let me know. Thanks!

BRM Connect Keynote Presentation

I had the honor of delivering the keynote presentation at the BRM Connect 2023 Conference in Portland, OR. The presentation was entitled “BRM 2030: The Vision, The Impact, The Dream.” It centered around my vision of the future of BRM. You can watch the video below and download the presentation deck on my website here.

UK BRM Community Event

In early November, the UK BRM Community held an event in Southampton, where I talked to the group about “The Art of BRM.” We also put this talented group through a series of exercises to practice key aspects of the BRM role.

Why BRM is Needed to Transform IT

Technology is all around us. It affects how people live, work, and play. It affects how organizations conduct business and how their customers or constituents interact with them. Technology has become the differentiator between organizations that grow and thrive and those that decline and eventually disappear.
