Head of Business Transformation - Guildford
Head of Business Transformation Jobs
Most businesses reach a point where they have to decide whether to undergo a major transformation. It could be a completely new product stream or means of delivery, or it could mean reaching out into whole new markets. Whatever the transformation, there is a good chance that the existing methodologies and infrastructures need to be rebooted almost from scratch – and that needs the expertise of a head of business transformation.
This role involves analyzing the company’s current position compared to where it wants to be. The head then decides what is the most efficient and the least disruptive way of getting there. It can be quite a balancing act, and timing is often crucial to ensuring transformed production lines or services come on stream simultaneously to minimize downtime. Often the head of transformation is a visionary who sees openings that the company can exploit; other times he or she will be a technician, receiving and interpreting global aims from the board and making them reality.
The skills required
The head of business transformation needs to be all-seeing when it comes to a business’s processes and procedures. You will get to know the company and its inner workings intimately before the complex task of transformation, with all its predicted as well as any potentially unpredictable effects. Analysis of transformation using modelling and intelligence-gathering is also a requirement, so experience in this field is essential.
Because transformation often straddles two or more sectors, experience of working in one or both will be particularly valued as a source of knowledge. It’s also true that transformation can often be bad news for some of the company’s employees who are no longer required once it is complete. Part of the job in this scenario is managing expectations and making the whole process smooth for the company, or at least making projections that can be interpreted by HR and actioned.

Head of Business Transformation Jobs in Guildford
Located 26 miles (46 km) south west of the centre of London , Surrey's county town Guildford is a historic setting in England's South. For a time, between the 10th and the 13th centuries the Royal Mint was located here, and that's not the town's only association with precious things – the “Guild” part of its name relates to gold. Guildford's castle was built during this time, too.
Guildford was one of the first towns to have a canal dug through it, in the mid-1600s, about 100 years before the national boom in canals. Named the Wey Navigation, it linked directly to the River Thames to allow the fast transportation of heavy goods to and from the capital. Although the town has never been the location of heavy industry, it has always been a good place to do business, and that is certainly true today, with several international companies having offices or head offices there. The list includes Philips Electronics, Colgate-Palmolive, Ericsson, Allianz, Electronic Arts and Sanofi. Since EA is not the only major video game producer in town, Guildford has something of a reputation of being an entertainment software capital.
Guildford is a reasonably affluent town and is a firm favourite among London's commuters who still want to live in a thriving town with plenty going on. Its population is around 70,000, and there are places such as the Surrey Research Park with plenty of exciting innovations being developed. Despite the lack of heavy industry, Head of Business Transformation positions do come up in Guildford, and we're best placed to locate them when they arise.
