When a company needs to change from within, be it a massive cultural shift or a paced, iterative series of improvements over time, the change needs to be project managed to perfection to minimize disruption, maintain workflow, maximize profitability and as far as possible, ensure that the employees are on board with the changes. This is the job of the change manager.
The change manager is typically in charge of a number of workstreams that are appropriate to the magnitude of the tasks. So that could mean anything from one to multiple workstreams depending on the complexity of the tasks and the manager’s experience. In larger companies the business change manager will report to a business change director, but often the manager is personally responsible for the change in his or her own area and reports directly to the board. In the latter, the manager will often be tasked with deciding on initiatives alongside analysts, the board and the production team itself, and will be judged on the success of his or her projects.
In many cases, the details of the change required will be given to you as business change manager, and you will have to project manage them to completion. At other times, however, the role starts much earlier, briefed with the information that change needs to happen and that you are to identify the low-hanging fruit as well as the finer details to come up with a long-term strategy of change.
Whatever your responsibilities, you are going to need a strategic, analytical mindset if you are to see your projects through to completion. Change is often a gradual process that needs a light hand on the tiller once it has been initiated, in which case you could have several overlapping workstreams to take care of. You’ll need to be able to juggle them effectively and know when to delegate management and when to take control yourself. Communication and understanding reports and instructions from people at all levels within the company is a key skill.

Aberdeenshire is a large county in the North East of Scotland. Although clearly named after the large city of Aberdeen, the city itself is not technically in the county (Aberdeen City is the local authority), although the city does of course influence the county greatly, not least because the county’s main offices are in Aberdeen City area! Aberdeen borders the counties of Angus, Perth and Kinross and Highland Moray. The population of the county of Aberdeenshire is roughly the same as that of the city, about a quarter of a million.
Aberdeen is a thriving city that is still hugely dependent on the North Sea Oil industry, and is a centre of employment, culture and entertainment that influences the county of Aberdeenshire. Anyone looking for Business Change Manager jobs should check the City of Aberdeen first, but the towns in its orbital area are well worth checking out too. Peterhead, Inverurie and Fraserburgh are worth checking, too.
