I want to get a user name based on a title.  For example, instead of hard coding our HR Manager's name into a workflow OR having to have a person type in the HR managers name in a form, I would like to set-up the workflow to go to the AD to retrieve the HR Managers name based on their title being hard coded in the workflow.  Is this even possible?

@cbeene not sure why you would want to go off title instead of name? I don't think that title is a searchable asset from the profile to key off of. The people picker field is keyed off the name or email address. You could have another field show their profile title once the name is selected for validation, but not the other way.
