I work for a small, start up company. My role is that of Manager of Operations. I was told if I wanted a title greater than that, I would be held to it.
In reality, a small startup calls for every employee to drop whatever they are doing when urgent needs pop up, and they do a few times a day. In the spirit of Burton's post on business jargon, I think I may have come up with my very own contribution.
Drop Shipment - when a shipment of 4 pallets of plastics shows up (or whatever), drop what you are doing and get if off the truck.
Does this work? It does for me.
