Businesses undergoing transformations, or those planning to make the great leap in the future, need a dedicated team to oversee their projects. That means putting plans in place, setting the wheels in motion, closely monitoring initial signals and fine-tuning where necessary, and finally reporting back to the board on progress at regular intervals. This tasks are carried out by a transformation team headed up by a business transformation manager.
The BT manager often reports to a business transformation director, but in some corporate structures the manager heads up the transformation and reports directly to the board as a whole. The details of the structure determines what roles the manager performs and how strategically they need to be thinking, i.e. whether they are creating a transformation project or simply implementing one. Either way, the BT manager needs to show the board that the transformation project is being activated to plan, and works alongside analysts and other managers to monitor and forecast its progress.
To land a great business transformation manager role, you need a minimum of experience at a managerial level overseeing a transformation project in an industry similar to the one in which the company operates. However, although experience at managerial level is preferred, team leadership or single-handedly overseeing transformation at a relevant level may be considered more important than the position’s title.
Above all, you need to demonstrate that you have the analytical skills required to oversee a project and ensure the wheels keep moving, especially when the terrain gets rough. You need to show that you can delegate effectively and that you have the people skills and the management skills needed to make sure the transformation project progresses as closely as possible to the plan and that the goal and milestones are met.

The Berkshire town of Bracknell is located at the centre of a cross with Farnborough, Reading, Maidenhead and the western tip of London as its points. It is located between the A308(M) and the M3, which run parallel to its north and south respectively.
Bracknell has a long and rich history, with mentions in the Domesday Book and Bronze Age finds there. Locals like to believe it was a favourite haunt of highwayman Dick Turpin, and there was supposed to be a secret tunnel between two inns via which he could escape capture. There must be something in the water, as a band of marauders known as the Wokingham Blacks had been terrorising the forest area; they were finally brought to justice by the Grenadier Guards in 1723. After World War 2, Bracknell was designated as a location for a New Town, and in the intervening decades the town’s population grew from a few thousand to its current total of around 50,000.
Commercially, the town is rather successful, and many multinationals have set up offices there, particularly in the hi-tech and electronics sectors. The list includes Fujitsu, Panasonic, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Siemens, Cable and Wireless, 3M and Novell. The headquarters of Supermarket Waitrose and the UK arm of BMW are also in Bracknell.
Bracknell is a thriving town, where great jobs in logistics, supply chain and procurement such as Business Transformation Manager positions are often found. Its excellent links to London and the whole of South England, as well as Heathrow Airport, are no doubt parts of the decision when companies choose to locate there.
