UX Team of Two (A UX Manager & Senior UX Designer)



  • I am little confused with the roles of these two. What is really the difference between the UX Manager and his subordinate, a Senior UX Designer?

    Currently in our team of two (2), the UX Manager will arrange the timeline, speak to the stakeholders, then ask his Senior UX Designer to work on the design process (from research, wireframe, to prototyping).

    Once all are done, he will collect the deliverables and arrange a meeting with the stakeholders - without including the Senior UX Designer. He will present the prototype and get the feedback all by himself, then relay it to the Senior UX Designer.

    Is this really the correct process?



  • Definitely not a correct process. Both roles require ownership and taking responsibility. So either they should do the job and present everything together, or a UX manager is not required here. Though that split could work with Junior UXer. Another case is when there are several UXers whose findings should be summarised and managed.
