Regardless of whether your focus is design or product, your job as a leader is to improve the organization’s ability to deliver the right experience.

Your organization is a unique combination of life stage, industry, culture, skill levels, structure, resources, and other factors. As a leader, you have a unique combination of strengths that make some situations easier than others. The track continually adapts to the needs of the members but includes, e.g.:

  • Facilitating & making better decisions.
  • Adapting your team’s approach to the organization’s context & culture.
  • Influencing organizational values.
  • Defining & applying human-centered metrics.
  • Making hiring more effective.
  • Coaching people at multiple levels.
  • Design Ops for scaling processes & teams.
  • Influencing stakeholders outside of your team.
  • Knowing your strengths as a leader (and when to lean on others).
  • Making sure your role and career are sustainable for YOU.
