|Overview:||Not every designer wants to be a traditional design lead. For those that don't, how can you have a long-lasting career in design if you don't want to manage people? This presentation is broken down into three key areas: Ranking Designer Skills, The Gap Between Seniors and Leads, and Growing Force Multipliers. It covers the traditional 'become a lead' career advancement path, but then breaks away from that mold and lays out several proven, non-lead career paths. We'll cover the pitfalls of trying to become or grow a subject matter expert, and how seniors can impact a team as thought or technical champions.|
