As UX designers mature and advance in their career, it’s natural to want more opportunities to be strategic and lead design teams. I’ve noticed, and this depends on the size of the organization, that opportunities are not as abundant as they are in other fields. This could be due to the maturity of the design practice at an org, budget constraints, etc.
With that said, how does one position themselves into a design leadership role? Are there enough opportunities out there for UX professionals looking for the next phase in their careers?
I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately and would like to hear from the community.
