Elevating technology’s role in the organization

Catalyze IT modernization & business transformation activities

Stimulating a Culture of Partnering

For almost 20 years, organizations have deployed Business Relationship Managers (BRMs) and Business Partners to ‘bridge the gap’ between IT and business teams; yet few have achieved breakthrough business results. New approaches are needed to elevate the role technology plays across every part of the organization.

Traditional IT organizations must stop acting solely as ‘Providers’ and ‘Promoters’ and instead embrace the additional perspective and capabilities of ‘Partners’ and ‘Peers’ in their organizations. In order to do this the skills of individuals must be developed and enhanced across each of the 4Ps. At the same time, it is essential that the organization fosters a culture which is supportive of the BRM and conducive to Business Partnering.

How to Elevate Technology’s Role & Create Change

Through diagnostic tools and ‘beyond the book’ training we provide a mechanism to elevate the role of technology across the business. LEF was an early mover in shaping the discipline and market for BRM, and our focus remains on providing strategic insights rather than a broad training programme. We help organizations catalyze their IT modernization and business transformation activities.

  • Bring the latest thinking & deep understanding of how others have successfully approached BRM
  • Fully develop the characteristics required to successfully operate with the 4Ps model
