Overview and goals[ edit ] BRM is implemented via organizational roles, a discipline, and an organizational capability.
As a discipline[ edit ] The BRM discipline is research-based and has been verified and enhanced for over a decade. It is used in organizations worldwide and is effective for shared servicesexternal service providers and others.
A goal of the discipline is to enable stakeholders to develop, evaluate, and use high-value networking relationships. As an organizational role[ edit ] The BRM organizational role is a link between a service provider and the business.
The role acts as a connector, orchestrator, and navigator between the service provider and one or more business units. As a model[ edit ] One goal of BRM is to provide a complete model of business relationships and their value over time, in order to make their various aspects both explicit and measurable.
A mature BRM model will ultimately support strategic business research and development efforts as well as tools and techniques that implement BRM principles. The approach to the BRM modeling process is to identify and describe various aspects of business relationships in terms of: A practice derived from applying BRM principles, analyzing outcomes, and refining over multiple iterations A platform derived from successful practice that further support and optimize BRM as a discipline The BRM model will identify and categorize business relationships according to type.
Each type has a discrete and clear purpose, characterized by a unique combination of roles, functions, and activities, and instances of each type can be identified, quantified, and analyzed.
Some examples of these relationship types are business-to-business, business-to-consumer, and business-to-employee.
The BRM model identifies two roles, provider and consumer ; a given business by necessity participates in both roles. BRM lifecycles[ edit ] The concept of the business relationship lifecycle   builds on charting the complex changing values of business relationships over time in contrast to simple transactional value.
Examples of BRM lifecycles include: A large-scale grow and sustain cycle, characterized by one-to-many and many-to-one relationships. Activities in this cycle are more or less continuous and overlapping, such as marketingcustomer product support or maintenance, or online community.
These have indeterminate outcomes. A small-scale micro engagement cycle, characterized by one-to-one, discrete or transactional relationships.
These have discrete cycles and negotiated outcomes. BRM principles[ edit ] Measurement and analysis The goals of BRM require that its concepts and principles be identifiable and measurable.
Given the model, a person should be able to identify the business relationships that they are engaged in, and measure them in terms like quantity or duration. The same holds for any aspect of BRM, such as type, role, or principle.
Purpose Every business relationship has a purpose that requires the participation of multiple roles to accomplish. The purpose of a given business relationship is discrete and quantifiable.
Reputation and trust The BRM model should attempt to model and quantify reputation and trust. Every relationship, and every interaction within it, contributes to reputation. Reputation mitigates risk and reduces friction within business processes.Customer relationship management (CRM) is a customer-focused business strategy that dynamically integrates sales, marketing and customer care service in order to create and add value for the company and its customers.
