How is UX design related to management? I hear that question quite often. The answer is pretty straightforward: monitoring the end user’s interaction with your design and addressing performance issues is part of UX design. That’s practical management.
UX managers have all kinds of fancy titles, but their responsibilities are the same. The main role of this manager is to actively remake the interface between the business and customer. This is not just the manager of the UX team; sometimes their role is integrated into the marketing department, and sometimes it is performed by the project manager. Whatever the case is, the UX manager defines what a good experience is, and leads the project towards that direction.
