Jacob Nielsen predicts that “we’ll be 100 million UX professionals in the world by 2050. This corresponds to 1% of the world’s population.”
The prediction goes further and establishes that “for all practical purposes, the growth in UX is still to come.”
I firmly believe it is all design leaders’ responsibility to nurture the next generation of designer leaders that are inevitably will be needed to manage this explosive growth.
My policy is to accept to mentor up to three new-in-job design leaders/ managers that I do not have a working relationship with.
