Where have you made the change, and did you try "Fetch as Google" in GWT to get them to look at a fresh copy?

Have you checked your server access logs to see if googlebot has requested that page?
Does google have a cached version of that page?
If so, does the cached date precede the title change?
Regardless of your change, google might prefer your old title.

I changed the title and now it shows in google.
Prior to that the title was like this

x | x - name
and google was displaying only x but bing and yahoo displayed correctly
