    My company is wanting to promote our current continuous improvement supervisor. He is the continuous improvement leader for the company now. We wanted the title to be continuous improvement manager, but the word manager takes away the possibility of getting paid overtime (company rules). His one request was to still be paid overtime. Other than the word “manager” what would be an appropriate title for someone who leads all continuous improvement activities at a manufacturing plant?

    At one company where I worked once you got up to a certain level on the technical side they took away all reference to your particular specialty – engineer, statistician, etc. and gave you a the title of technical associate. If you advanced further you became a senior technical associate. Why not continuous improvement associate?

    Our company has several continuous improvement associates. The person described led this groups activities as their supervisor. A proper name for this position other than manager would be?

    Senior associate? Continuous Improvement Fellow? (At that same company if you were promoted past senior associate the next level was technical fellow).

    Senior- Tech Process & Quality.

    At another place where I worked the level above senior was called Lead so the title Lead Continuous Improvement might be a possibility.

    Why not “leader”? It confirms leadership responsibilities but not necessarily other things that go with “manager” in many companies. I’ve had job titles where I was leader rather than manager because no one reported directly to me, but I still had broad authority and comparable compensation.

    It is a general problem. Occupation without a distinct name like auditor, lawyer, engineer etc. I propose a new name Effector – LSS Green Belt, Operational excellence, iimplementation leader. Effector-in-Chief for VP.
