What is a Change Champion?

You’ve probably heard about Change Champions, and you should know the change champion in your functional area.

But what do they actually do?

Change Champions are an essential part of any Change Programme.  They are key people within each School or Directorate who act as a liaison between the Programme Team and their own teams.   By communicating the aims, objectives and outputs to the end users in their business units/Directorate or School area, they are able to both raise awareness of the Programme and feedback the impact of the change to those who are responsible for managing it.
Change Champions are positive about the change, they believe in the need for change and have the confidence to talk to their peers about change.
But that isn’t all.

Working with Their Teams

They work with their teams to ensure they are informed and prepared for the change.
You may see your Change Champion giving a short presentation at a team meeting, holding an information session or helping the Business Transformation team. They will be a useful source of knowledge about the Change Programme and will distribute information regarding this.
Change Champions are integral to the success of any Change Programme and are immensely helpful to their teams.
