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 town located in Wiltshire, around halfway between Bristol and Reading, Swindon is a busy place with lots of opportunity for those seeking Business Transformation Manager vacancies.
The town's early history goes back to a Saxon settlement that was called Suindune in the Domesday Book. For hundreds of years, it mainly subsisted as a market town, with the trade of cattle, corn and other agricultural produce, as well as horse sales.
During the 19th century, the area was known for its railway works, which built and repaired locomotives for the Great Western Railway - a train company that connected the south-west and Wales to London's Paddington Station.
Today, Swindon's economy is mainly based in the retail and service sector and there are a number of large shopping centres in the region.
The town is also home to several big businesses. For instance, Honda and BMW/Mini both have manufacturing sites in the area, while W H Smith's distribution centre and headquarters are also situated in Swindon.
Other companies based in Swindon or with major facilities in the vicinity include Motorola, Dolby, Intel, Nationwide Building Society, Arval and the National Trust.
What's more, Swindon is home to a book depository for Oxford's Bodleian library. The facility has 153 miles of shelving and enough space to house an estimated eight million tomes.
