Business Change Manager Jobs
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.
The skills required
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.
Business Change Manager Jobs in Bognor Regis
Like most of the seaside resorts in the UK, Bognor Regis (originally simply called Bognor) started out as a self-sustaining fishing village that linked to market towns in the vicinity. The Victorian era saw a massive interest in the health benefits of “sea air” and bathing, and the traditional seaside resort that we know and love today was born. Bognor Regis had a particularly good time of it, becoming a regular haunt of the royals and their entourages, which rendered an air of exclusivity that the other resorts could only dream of. The railway came in the shape of a special branch in the London to Portsmouth line, and Bognor Regis started to attract visitors from without the aristocratic connections, and as time went on and workers’ rights became stronger and wages grew, the resort became a favourite of the holidaying working class.
Located 19 miles (30 km) to the east of Portsmouth, 23 miles (37 km) to the west of Brighton and 4 miles (7 km) south east of the cathedral city of Chichester, Bognor Regis is a relatively small town with a resident population of around 25,000. In the summer months, of course, this swells massively as tourists come to fill the hotels, B&Bs and the famous Butlin’s holiday camp. Many of its inhabitants will commute to the city or nearby towns for work, but the populace is economically active, which is why Business Change Manager jobs might sometimes come up in the town or the surrounding area.
