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.

A historic county in northern England, Yorkshire is well known for its beautiful green spaces, as well as its intriguing past - but it has also long been a centre for industry and commerce, making it an ideal choice for those seeking Programme Manager jobs.
During the 15th century, the region was locked in civil war against neighbouring county Lancashire. Known as the Wars of the Roses, this series of conflicts over the throne lasted for more than 85 years, although a more friendly rivalry between the regions still exists today - mainly when it comes to sport.
Renowned for its wool and textile industry, Yorkshire also gained prominence for coal mining in the 16th and 17th centuries.
As the Industrial Revolution took hold, the region flourished - this was especially true of Sheffield, which was known for its innovation in the steel industry. What's more, a series of canals and railways was also developed, simplifying the transport of goods and raw materials throughout the region.
Today, a number of large cities and towns can be found in Yorkshire, including, Sheffield, Leeds, Hull, Halifax and Bradford, and within these locations job seekers can find a variety of industries - from financial and retail, through to manufacturing and technology.
Some of the top employers in the region include Morrisons, Asda, Yorkshire Bank Leeds, First Direct, Timothy Taylor Brewery and McCain Foods (GB).
