Business Relationship Management Professional (BRMP®) – Foundation Level: Course Overview

Business Relationship Management Professional (BRMP®) is a world-class professional development program designed to provide a solid baseline level knowledge of Business Relationship Management. It embodies a set of competencies to foster an effective business value-producing relationship between a service provider and its business partners. These competencies can be leveraged through:

BRM’s focus is on increasing the value proposition of services and reducing the perennial challenge of the gap between ‘the business needs’ and that of service provision (often referred to as the ‘Alignment Challenge’). As the gap reduces through the skills of the BRM so the value to the business increases and value leakage slows. The BRM Role therefore is a crucial link between a service provider and the business acting as a connector, orchestrator and navigator between the service provider and one or more business units. ALC’s course on Business Relationship Management is fully accredited by APMG in association with Business Relationship Management Institute (BRMI), the world leading go-to source of up-to-date BRM knowledge and practices and the forum to exchange ideas with other BRM practitioners in the field.

Now you can master the essential skills and knowledge of BRMP with ALC’s powerful 3-day accredited course.


The BRM Discipline rests on solid research-based foundations verified and enhanced over a decade of successful implementations in leading organisations across the world. Proven to be equally effective for shared services including Human Resources, Finance, Legal, external service providers and others, BRM practices have enjoyed widespread adaption in IT. BRM implementations rate in IT services has quickened significantly, since 2011, when the BRM role and corresponding processes have been formalized as an Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) best practice and an ISO/IEC 20000 IT Service Management international standard requirement.
