There are several reasons for differences.  The two I know of are:

1) They are aimed at different audiences.  the job description is 
intended to go out much more broadly than the IETF.

2) The RSOC requested, and was given permission, to replace the term 
"executive management" in their posted summary.  The IAB has not yet 
made a final decision on that issue for 5620bis.  If folks have opinions 
on that, they should say so.  (And quite a few folks have done so, which 
has been helpful.)
