At our very first joint IxDA event at Designit Munich, we invited the UX community to explore what really matters in leadership. We were joined by Rachel Jackson, Head of Design at Thomson Reuters (UK), who shared her thoughts and experience on how to manage a UX team.
What’s next for me? Many talented young designers out there are asking this question to themselves. The interaction design world is changing rapidly. There’re an increasing number of opportunities within the profession. And one option for skilled interaction designers is to move to management. Together with Designit, the IxDA Munich chapter invited Rachel Jackson, Head of Design at Thomson Reuters (UK), to share what she’s learned through her experience managing an UX team. She shared some insights to provide a deeper understanding of what great leadership really is, while relating it back to the specific challenges of being a UX manager.
