So what would you do if the client told you they hate the manager on the job? They think he's incompetent and over-charges on out-of-scope work because of his lack of knowledge and inefficiency.

My dilemma. I'm a big 4 manager focused on IAM but with a CISSP. My goal is to be an info sec manager/director/ciso but each of those seem to require experience like responding to incidents, performing security assessments, etc. Has anyone made the evolution from IAM focus to general info sec manager/director and if so, what was your path? Do I need to "downgrade" and take an incident response analyst level role so I can get hands on experience? Thanks
