Over my 20+ year career, mostly spent in revenue management practice, I've seen the job titles progress from "Operations Research Analysts" to the now far more common use of "Data Scientist". I've seen some publications regarding this topic but it seems to still be in a state of transition with significant ambiguity. It's not merely about the semantics between OR (operations research) and DS (data science) but becomes more complex and important when trying to differentiate levels of experience and qualification. This is all before the scope increases with titles containing analytics, engineers, ml, ai,....Having spent years in management of OR/DS teams I have keen interest in this topic especially from the recruitment and employee development perspectives.My sense of this is that it's heading in the following general direction;Operations Research Analysts --> Data ScientistManager --> Senior Data ScientistMore senior levels are using "Principal" or "Chief"To answer the specific question, my current job title is that of "Vice President & Principal Scientist Revenue Management & Fleet".
