If you have a role as a Business Relationship Manager (BRM), I’d love to engage you in a very quick research study — and I will share the results and analysis with you!

The Context

I recently published a post called When Business Relationship Managers Collude with Dysfunctional Behavior.  I’ve had a lot of comments about this post (as usual, mostly via email – people continue to be shy about posting comments to a blog!) and a request to deliver a webinar for Business Relationship Management Institute. So, I’m developing a webinar entitled “A Day in the Life of an Effective Business Relationship Manager.”  The webinar will examine:

  • Time allocation patterns for Business Relationship Managers
  • A diagnostic approach to re-balancing time allocation for increased business value
  • Addressing Provider dysfunctionalities without becoming part of the problem

The webinar will be held on Friday, October 3, 2014, 11AM-12PM EDT, and is free. If you miss the webinar, BRMI members can download a recording of the webinar about 2 weeks after the actual event.  Non-members can purchase a copy of the webinar recording for $65 USD.

A Research Opportunity

In preparation for the webinar, I have decided to run a small research study, looking at how BRMs spend their time across 10 classifications, and asking them how they would like to see their time allocated in order to realize the optimum value from their role.

If you spend at least half your time in a BRM role, I’d love for you to participate in the research.  In return, I’ll be happy to share the research results and analysis with you.

Simply click on this link and you will be taken to the research survey.  Completing the survey should take less than 10 minutes.

Thank you!
