    I'm also interested in this topic, but I think that in every job you have to work on getting better, or you'll be out of it. In IT it's especially clearly felt, because it runs at an alarmingly fast pace, and we sometimes seem obsolete or not good enough (imposter syndrome). I just recently was on an conference in Kiev, and DON NORMAN was there. He basically said that designers (problem solvers) need to climb the corporate ladder be the problem solvers, because the current C-suite leaders think mostly about money and short term solutions.

      I've been saying this for years! When people ask "Do designers need to know how to code?", my response is always "you're asking the wrong question. We should be asking if designers should understand business?".
