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.

The County Down town of Bangor is a north-facing seaside town lying 10 miles (16 km) east of the centre of Northern Ireland’s capital Belfast. Newtownards is a few miles to the south, but Bangor is surrounded on all sides by lush agricultural land, making it a desirable place to live, favoured by affluent people and commuters to the city. It’s also a resort for holidaymakers and day-trippers, with parks and golf clubs aplenty. The front, which opens up onto the eastern part of Belfast Lough, has three distinct characters. To the west it is made up of low cliffs and rock formations; in amongst the rocks is a popular marina; and to the east there’s a cove with a sandy beach.
Bangor is connected to Belfast by the last remaining part of the Victorian Belfast and County Down Railway, and has two stations, with regular services. There is also the main A2 road which connects the two in a 20-minute drive. Towards the end of the journey you would pass Belfast City Airport, a commuter favourite, handy for Bangor’s business community.
At the south of Bangor is a business park with various light industry as well as leisure facilities such as ex-Formula One driver Eddie Irvine’s enterprise, an activity centre with karting, paintball, laser combat and football.
