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.

Halfway between Liverpool and Manchester lies Warrington, a large town with an industrial and commercial pedigree to match some of the UK’s smaller cities. It followed the traditional Northern path of booming during the Industrial Revolution, specialising in steel, textiles and chemical industries, as well as some brewing for good measure, much of which remains to this day.
The town is extremely well connected, with three major motorways, the M62, the M6 and the M56 passing its north, east and south respectively and A roads radiating out in all directions, typical of the market town it once was. The River Mersey passes through it, as do the Manchester Ship Canal and Bridgewater Canal and two major railway lines. With its population of over 200,000 people and a shopping area to rival any city, it’s a bustling and attractive town to live in.
Around the town’s edges are hundreds of large and small businesses, including a large Unilever detergent factory in the east. There are lots of warehouses and logistics companies in the area, too, that take advantage of its excellent communications and skilled workforce.
