Employees don’t need titles, we need clear-cut duties, responsibilities and boundaries

map and compass

you can create fancy titles all you want but it will just lead to stress and unproductive time spent thinking “wtf does this title mean?”
this is a people WASTE in terms of LEAN, see (unclear reponsibilities)
in contrast if we give people answers to the ff: we will be more productive instead of letting the person discover all of these by chance, like maybe within a few years.

  • what is my high-level goal (unless you are the CEO, your superior should set this with you) ?
  • who do i report to?
  • what group do i belong?
  • what tools/resources are at my disposal ?
  • who reports to me ?
  • up to what part of the system is under my control (or who else shares control over portions of it) ?

People like working for things they are passionate about, things where they know how they could be of help.
We need more of those instead of the “anti-stress” features such as a fancy pantry or free snacks.
we can elimininate that stress before it even begins.
