German term or phrase: Stabstellenleiter
Gewichtung bei Bereichsleitern: 30%, bei Stabstellenleitern/AL mit Führungsverantwortung: 20%

This is a title to a document entitled "Management Objectives 2006". I am presuming AL means Abteilungleiter, so what does that make Stabstellenleiter, some form of group head? I know this is 2 questions but they are no doubt related, if anybody has an idea on why the "führungsverantwortung" has been tagged on at the end I would be interested to hear. I would have thought that this would be implied in the title of "Leiter"...

"Abteilungsleiter" would be head of department, so I presume the department comes under the unit
