About This Class

Is management the right path for your career? It might look like a promotion, but how much of your creative work will be replaced with administrative/managerial tasks?

If you are a UX designer considering a move to management, take this class to:

  • Understand what UX management really is
  • Evaluate if it’s a good fit for you
  • Plan a strategy to get there

I’ll share personal tips and experience and we will go through two short exercises using some familiar UX methods:

  • Build your UX Manager Persona to help you empathise with your future manager self and decide if it’s the right role for you
  • Create your customised user journey to help get you to your new role
