Event description
How to decide if the management is right for you? How to transition from being an IC designer to an exceptional manager?

About this event

Join RETHINK and our special guest Jian Wei - Design Manager at Zendesk while we discuss the challenges of transitioning from IC to design management.

What we'll cover

  • How to decide if the management path is what you want to do? How do you know you're ready?
  • How do you bring up this type of conversation with your manager
  • How to make the transition from being an IC designer to a manager?
  • How to know you'll be good at it?
  • Now that you are a manager how do you measure your impact? Should you still be designing too?
  • What skills should you be focusing on developing as a new manager?

Making the move from IC to Design Manager is not an easy decision and it's important to have clarity on the right questions to ask. In this talk, Jian Wei will be sharing his own journey from IC to the management path, the challenges he has encountered, and he'll have a conversation with you about your challenges.
