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.

A city in the East Midlands and the county town of Leicestershire, Leicester was originally founded as a Roman settlement and those living or working in the area can still see some of the pavements and bathhouses that survive from that period.
For hundreds of years, Leicester thrived as a market town. Then in the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution led to a major boost in the city's wealth and population. The construction of an extensive rail and canal network also helped bring business, money and more people to the region.
During this period, Leicester became known for its shoemaking industry, while hosiery and textiles were also manufactured in the area. In addition, it was a hub of engineering and a financial centre.
In fact, Leicester's reliance on engineering has continued through to today, with a variety of companies like Jones & Shipman, Richards Engineering and Trelleborg - known for their machining of tools and equipment, as well as components for marine and industrial applications - all having offices in the city. Fabric and footwear are also still important parts of the local economy.
A number of large companies call this city home, meaning there's a wealth of opportunity for those seeking Business Transformation Manager jobs in Leicester. Big names like Next, Goldsmiths, British Gas Business, Walmart and DHL all have head offices here, while around ten million bags of crisps are manufactured every day at the Walkers Crisps factory in Beaumont Leys.
