    The title Czar, Tsar, Kaiser, Shaw, Pshaw and a few other titles were originally derived from the great Roman emperor and general Julius Caesar and means Emperor.

    Julies Caesar (although he was assimilated) was regarded as a great general and leader. Caesar, as I recall, wept at a statue of Alexander the Great and wanted to emulate him as a fighting leader and general..

    That said, a “czar” in a management or political sense is someone who transcends normal organizational lines so as to focus authority for a specific purpose in a single person.

    IMO, in an organization, a “Czar” is at best a short term fix for a specific purpose. In the long run, “Czars” cause duplicated resources and infighting between individuals and departments.

    Whenever a “Czar” is created, I would ask why the problem that requires a “Czar” cannot be solved using the existing organization.
