C3PO – A New Role Maybe?

I’ve been thinking some more about Jean Tabaka’s post about a new job
title for their HR Director, and my subsequent comments about the
negativity I feel about referring to people as ‘resources’.

Since most Board director roles are Chief something Officer, I suggested
CPO for Chief People Officer, which I think is a very fitting and very
sensible suggestion.

But then I thought of this! If the HR Director is responsible for
People, Process and Payroll (3 P’s), perhaps they should be called C3PO?!

I don’t know about you, but if I was CEO I couldn’t resist that, and
what HR Director in their right mind wouldn’t want that :)

“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
