Transformation Officer Roles

Large companies are increasingly developing and staffing Business Transformation groups. This article highlights three position descriptions for the Director level. Many of these Directors will handle strategic initiatives as well as strategic projects and programs.

It is worth noting that the word transform appears in the standard definition of a strategic initiative:

A strategic initiative is a boundary-spanning endeavor that intends to achieve three interrelated goals: 1) achieve a strategic intent or vision, 2) provide benefits to significant stakeholders, and 3) transform the organization.
