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.

Walsall has gone through countless changes through history, not least with its name, which was once Walesho, meaning valley of the Welsh speakers. It was also historically in Staffordshire, but is now part of the West Midlands metropolitan county, along with Birmingham and Wolverhampton, its neighbour in the west.
The population of Walsall, which had been a relatively small village, exploded during the Industrial Revolution, and it was an important coal mining, limestone quarrying, iron and brass founding and leatherworking centre. This latter trade is still associated with the town, hence the football club’s nickname The Saddlers. Modern industries include plastics, aircraft parts, chemicals and electronics. The RAC has its control centre nearby, as anyone who has travelled on the M6 will know. Recently the high street clothing and homeware store TK Maxx opened its regional depot there.
The town is particularly well served by the road and rail networks, which along with its location right in the centre of England, has opened up the opportunity for companies to locate their depots and warehouses in the area. This means that Business Transformation Manager positions are frequently asked for by local employers. And like many towns and cities with strong links to Britain’s industrial past, there’s a workforce and work ethic to fulfil them.
