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.

Scunthorpe is a town at the north of Lincolnshire roughly as far north as Grimsby on the east coast but 23 miles (37 km) inland. Its closest major neighbour is Hull, 16 miles (26 km) to the north east, and Leeds and Sheffield are both roughly 35 miles (57 km) to the west. The town originally comprised five villages, Ashby, Crosby, Brumby, Frodingham and Scunthorpe, but time merged them together and they officially collectively became Scunthorpe as we now know it, with a population of around 75,000.
The town has a rich industrial heritage, and played its part in the Industrial Revolution as a major centre for ironworks in the mid to late 1800s. These would eventually become steel works as the technology was honed. The usual story for most of these industrial boom towns is that that fell into decline in the twentieth century, but happily for Scunthorpe this is not the case. The largest single employer remains the steelworks, now owned by the Indian steel giant Tata. Thanks to the ongoing success of the steelworks, many engineering firms, large and small, are doing well in the area. Major local employers include BOC, Bell Waste Control, Nisa Today’s, 2 Sisters, Key Country Foods, The Sauce Company and Ericsson.
With such a vibrant industrial history and the whole spectrum of industry from heavy to light, Business Transformation Manager jobs can appear in Scunthorpe from time to time. The town is also at the centre of a circle of major towns, cities, resorts and ports, which can potentially lead new logistics, warehousing and supply chain companies to set up there.
