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.

Situated in the West Midlands and less than 20 miles from Birmingham, Coventry is a metropolitan borough and one of the top ten largest cities in England. Indeed, for those seeking Business Transformation Manager vacancies, Coventry will have a variety of employers to consider.
The history of the city goes back to a Bronze Age community that was settled by the Romans in the first century. By the 1500s, Coventry was at the centre of the cloth and textile trade and during the Middle Ages, it was one of the most influential locations in England.
As time passed, Coventry became known for manufacturing fine watches and clocks, while other technological innovations, such as the safety bicycle in the late 1800s, paved the way for the city to become one of the leading areas for car manufacture in the early 20th century.
During the same period, the city manufactured an array of other products, ranging from machine tools and aerospace components to electronics, telecoms equipment and man-made fibres.
Today, the economy in Coventry relies on finance, business services, logistics and leisure, more than on manufacturing. However, a number of car factories can still be found within city limits, such as LTI, the company that manufactures London's iconic black cabs, Jaguar, Rolls Royce and Peugeot. Meggitt Aircraft, a company that makes braking systems for the aerospace industry, is also located in Coventry.
