Business Relationship Management - Foundation | E-learning | Online Training

The Business Relationship Management Professional Foundation qualification allows delegates to understand the BRM role and create awareness of it in their organisation.  They will also be able to look at current relationships in their business and identify where improvements can be made.

What is Business Relationship Management?

Businesses can only thrive through great relationships. The interdependency of businesses means that without good relationships with suppliers, customers and many more stakeholders, it is easy to see how a business can fall short

Our Foundation level Business Relationship Management course is designed to give you a solid understanding of the topic in order to help you through your career as a business relationship manager. By completing the foundation course you will be able to demonstrate your competency in various aspects of business relationship management including operating, monitoring, reporting, implementing, planning and evaluation.

The certification is aimed at anyone working or looking to work in a business relationship environment, such as buyers, sales teams and customer service advisors. However, it may also be of use to business owners, project managers and others involved in business processes.
