Companies who are taking business change and transformation seriously make sure they have the most important element at its heart: a great team. And while the programme director or the board in general steer the programme and make the key global decisions, they need exemplary managers to work alongside the C&T team to ensure it is delivered. Overseeing the team or part of the team is the job of programme managers.
Depending on the size and nature of the company, the scope of the team in place and the changes or transformations the company is undergoing, the programme manager oversees a single workstream or several simultaneously. They are the link between the employees performing the change and the board, and as such have an important role in reporting problems as well as successes, and also have a consultative role from above and below. The smooth, efficient running of a C&T programme depends upon good programme managers ensuring those workstreams are flowing as smoothly as possible.
Previous management of workstreams in a business change and transformation context will almost always be required of the programme manager, although some companies will promote promising C&T team leaders to management positions if they can demonstrate advanced aptitude and experience in the same sector. You need to be organized and able to deal with complex, ever-changing facts and figures on the ground and interpret them into actionable insights.
As with all intermediate mangers, your communication skills must be excellent. You can receive anything from detailed instructions to an overall goal from the board, depending on the arrangement, and those instructions are filtered through you into the team. You need to be adept at sharing relevant information in a clear and concise way and to be available and approachable enough to take instruction, advice and queries well from both directions.
