Business Relationship Management Institute (BRMI) releases update on the progress of the Certified Business Relationship Manager (CBRM®) certification and the team behind the development
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 19, 2015
Today, Business Relationship Management Institute (BRMI) publicly recognized the invaluable contributions and leadership of the team behind the development of the Certified Business Relationship Management (CBRM®) professional development and certification program. Well in advance of the CBRM® launch planned for Q2 2016, BRMI formed the CBRM® Content Development Team comprising of renowned Business Relationship Management (BRM) experts, trainers, game changing BRM practitioners, and senior business executives to create this training and certification program.
Founded in 2013, BRMI serves the global BRM community by providing membership, world-class professional development programs, and advancing the art and discipline of BRM to help maximize BRM capability in organizations.
The development of CBRM® fulfills a need for an expert practitioner training and certification offering. CBRM® is structured to supplement and leverage the foundation Business Relationship Management Professional (BRMP®) development and certification program. Since its release in Q2 of 2013, BRMP® has become the de facto global certification standard in the BRM field with many companies, making it a required or preferred qualification for BRM employment. With hundreds of BRMP® certified professionals, this widely accessible world-class BRM professional training and certification program offers great value for both the candidates who pursue the certification and the businesses who hire them.
The Certified Business Relationship Manager (CBRM®) training and certification program is intended for the intermediate to advanced Business Relationship Management practitioner. To pursue the CBRM® certification, a candidate must have earned the Business Relationship Management Professional (BRMP®) Certification.
The CBRM® Content Development Team is working hard on adding and expanding the latest knowledge to foster greater business partnering inside an organization converging IT, HR, Finance and other areas with the business focused on shared business strategy and shared accountability for greater business value results and effective communication all through a BRM capability.
Vaughan Merlyn, CBRM® Content Development Team leader, a founding father of the BRM discipline, co-founder of BRM Institute, renowned consultant, author, and educator with over 40 years of experience of elevating the business value of IT, said: “While BRMP training and certification covered the ‘what’ of business relationship management, CBRM drills deep into the ‘how.’ Based upon a realistic case study, the course will follow Business Relationship Maturity from ad hoc/order taker to strategic partner, as the case study company weathers the ups and downs and planned and unplanned changes experienced in the real world. The course is going to be highly interactive and promises to be a tremendously valuable learning experience!”

- Vaughan Merlyn, Principal, The Merlyn Group (CBRM Lead, APMG Deputy Examiner)
