Corporate Managerial Hierachy

Every day in the corporate environment, we speak about our managers.

There are certain terms such as Unit Manager and Department Manager.

But, to reference a manager 3 levels up, I keep hearing "Manager's

Manager's Manager" being used. Are there any official names for these

positions, I was thinking Manager cubed, or 3rd level manager, but

these are getting a bit more ridiculous. Something besides Manager of

Automation or Director of Engineering, would like the relationship to

the hierarchy. Any parody sites would also be ok.

  1. Hello gambo,

    Unfortunately, I found only a little information about this question.

    The best source I found was http://www.helensface.com/people.shtml .

    There thay state that there are several hierarchy found in business.

    And as one commenter said several British companies have adopted a

    'family' hierarchy system. I found many sites, however, that mention

    "manager's manager", and that seems to indicate to me that it is the

    proper term to use. I found this term on the website for the

    University of Mephis Business school at

    http://bf.memphis.edu/planning/one.php and I quote the site "The

    manager's manager is equally positive about the work unit council

    approach."

    As for a parody I found a few:

    http://www.ewin.com/article/uporg.htm about the corporate ladder and

    http://www.pintday.org/funny/corporatehierarchy.shtml which is a

    mockery of the hierarchy.

    Hope this answers your question!
