Head of Business Change

Head of Business Change Jobs

All successful businesses embrace change as an essential part of the growth process. Sometimes it can be difficult to achieve, with resistance from within and without, but when it’s done well the benefits will be felt by the company for years, or decades, to come. But change needs to be managed, and that is where the head of business change plays such a vital role. He or she oversees the process from identifying weaknesses in the business model right through to monitoring the effects of any changes that have been applied.

The head of business change has widely varying roles depending on the size and nature of the business. In smaller companies, he or she may have a directorial role and may oversee a handful of employees or managers as change is implemented. In a larger company, the head of business change could be making cultural or systemic changes that are worth millions and affect thousands of employees, making it a hugely influential and important position.

The skills required

The best heads of business change have experience in project management and delivery. Even if the job does not require those skills directly, it’s likely that you will be working closely with project managers to ensure change takes place at a manageable rate, and an insight into how they work is invaluable. You are going to need excellent communication skills as you will often be receiving information from the board and delivering the message right the way down the hierarchy in a manner that suits them so that they can best understand and implement the changes required.

You need to be able to analyse and project cause and effect based on the best possible information so that the changes you are proposing or implementing can be measured and their success can be assessed. Experience within the sector occupied by the company seeking a head of business change is advantageous, as every industry has its own way of working and you should also be better placed to identify trends that add up to the necessity for change.
