Business Relationship Management

Creating a business-focused capability to drive growth, increase effectiveness,
and make a positive impact throughout the organization

At Barkley Consulting Group, we have decades of experience building Business Relationship Management (BRM) capabilities that drive growth and efficiency, provide thought leadership, and deliver results. We don’t just use research and charts – we have actually done it before.

When done right, BRM can become one of the most influential roles in an organization. It connects capability with need, opportunity with growth, and innovation with vision. Successful organizations come to rely on BRM – and find other areas to use the BRM model throughout the enterprise.

Our team knows what works and what doesn’t. BRM is not a “Just Do It” thing. We know that a successful, effective BRM capability requires planning, execution, and results.

Whether it’s building a BRM capability, creating a more meaningful and beneficial partnership with business partners, or developing BRM staff with critical leadership skills, we can help.

BRM Classes/Workshops

Effective BRMs need specialized training to execute the role properly and make an impact on their organization.  We provide training classes and workshops that coach and train BRMs not only in the “mechanics” of BRM but how to successfully apply those (and other) tools, techniques, and processes.  We enable these skills in BRMs through both classroom and experiential training.

BRM Coaching and Development

The BRM role is unlike any other. It employs skills and techniques far beyond those of others in the organization. BRMs benefit from coaching in areas specific to the role itself and the “soft skills” that BRMs need to act at the highest levels of an organization. Using proven methodology and practical experience, we coach and mentor BRMs to reach their potential and deliver maximum benefit to their organization.
