Workshop #1 @ Room 310

UX Career Development Plan
products and services

Individuals starting their careers in this profession often reach a plateau in their professional development and end up doing similar or routine things over a period of time, thus impacting their career development.

The framework in the workshop will help participants to self-reflect and introspect. It will focus on helping them understand their strengths, areas of development, and their strengths they would like to leverage. This sets participants up for success in their professional roles.

The second aspect of the workshop will cover how different types of organizations will support the individual to achieve their goals. Participants will choose one of the industry verticals and organization size. They will come up with a plan about how to structure their User Experience teams or business units in the overall organizational structure.


After this workshop, you will be able to

  1. Identify your short-term and long-term goals. Where do you see yourself in the future?
  2. Have your own development plan to reach the identified goals.
  3. Collect feedback from your peers and managers systematically. The feedback will act as an input for specific development action plan.
  4. Utilize techniques to have successful career development conversations.
  5. Utilize techniques to meet your goals even if the organization does not have a structured growth plan.
