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.

A new town situated in Shropshire, Telford is located around 30 miles from Birmingham and is one of the fastest growing settlements in the UK, making it a great choice for those seeking Business Change Manager vacancies.
Most of Telford was built in the 1960s and 1970s on what had previously been industrial and agricultural land. However, people have been living in the region for thousands of years and evidence has been found of Roman roads and other ancient settlements. In its early days, the region's economy was based mainly in the mining of coal and ironstone, as well as metalworking.
As a planned town, Telford has been carefully laid out, with loads of residential property and plenty of retail outlets. What's more, the road infrastructure means that it's easy to travel between Telford and other destinations like Birmingham, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton.
In recent years, further regeneration and expansion have occurred to make the area even more attractive for businesses and residents.
These days, much of Telford's economy is based in the service sector and IT industries. Companies like Hitachi, Maxell and Nokia have offices or manufacturing facilities in the area, while other companies include GKN, Siemens and Fruit of the Loom.
