If I had it my way, most of our business cards would not list a job title. Mine never has.
Over the years, I have seen folks get caught up in their name, rank, and serial number for a company, maybe neglecting some important nuances in the process. With all respect to my banking friends, I have never met anyone with a lower rank than vice president listed on their card.
Our project management has a hand in estimating and at times estimating has a hand in project management. It’s just the way we are wired. No silos. Our civil engineering folks are involved with project management, and the list goes on. As business evolves, I think this is becoming true in many other fields. Job descriptions just aren’t as cut and dry as they once were, and a standard business card doesn’t have enough space for an accurate title.
When people first meet us, maybe they need a title to help them get our organization sorted out, but after an introductory conversation, this all seems to smooth out. To me, actions and good work are the best titles.
