Mr Continuous Improvement Facilitator

In 1997 When I sat at my computer reviewing profiles on AOL’s pen pal service to find interesting people to connect with (Yes, AOL. I did say it was 1997, didn’t I?), I read of a man in England with the job title of “continuous improvement facilitator.” What’s that, I thought. I could use one … Continue reading
