Outsider is no stranger to hearing about obscure job titles but one recent title is even new to him.

First there were chief investment officers, then chief innovation officers and now one large global consultancy firm is looking for a ‘chief anticipation officer’.

What does this mean? Someone who comes to the office and gets everyone excited about future company events? A ‘warm-up person’ for financial services?

In reality, the job description describes this person as someone who would help companies to anticipate whether a decision was favourable for all parts of a business and prevent potential unwanted outcomes from occuring.

However, as a man of a certain age, Outsider wonders if this person has had their heart checked, surely being in a permanent state of anticipation is good for no-one.
