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 Norfolk town of Great Yarmouth is almost the UK’s most eastern place, pipped to the post by a few metres by Lowestoft 8 miles (13 km) to the south. Norwich, Norfolk’s county town, is 18 miles (30 km) to the west. Great Yarmouth has a well earned reputation for being a holiday resort, and it is one of the most popular in the UK. However its hinterland is actually rather industrialised, and is heavily involved with the gas and oil rig industries. Just offshore there is a large wind farm, with 30 turbines harvesting the North Sea breezes.
Like several towns on the North Sea, Great Yarmouth was unfortunate enough to be bombed in both world wars, by Zeppelins, the German navy and the Luftwaffe. Both times the town rebuild to carry on its tourism industries in peacetime. Great Yarmouth has managed to retain its tourism industry where many others have failed, perhaps because it is a diverse town as far as industry is concerned, and the locals use the same amenities as the tourists. Whatever the reason, its 50,000 population, made up of a mix of families and retirees, is reasonably affluent and the town is steadily growing.
The oil rig plant and the gas industry themselves can be great indicators that Business Change Manager work could become available in Great Yarmouth, but the town’s population and its attractiveness to tourists also create an environment where the town has complex logistical needs to be met. With Norwich nearby, opportunities could arise just down the road, too.
