Any advice on switching from UX design into product management?

Do you have any experience with product yet? If not, I'd start focusing on learning and practicing. Ideally, it's much easier to transition within the same company, so are there any opportunities within PTC you can pursue? Also, I'd sit down with your manager to see if he/she would be willing to provide you with some additional projects. If this isn't possible, I'd recommend getting a mentor.

Shouldn't be difficult. You have a solid background of very transferable skills. Might take an online course just to feel more confident get a more well-rounded knowledge base

I'm looking for learning material or certification recommendations for executive level HR metrics. I have held Sr roles with the ability to communicate out meaningful metrics but am facing a new level of HR need at my company and want to be able to identify and calculate metrics for our CEO and other Executives such as an Efficiency ROI per department based on revenue and profit margin. I looked at AIHR but I would like community feedback on any programs or certs that would help with this.

Just wondering, do your agencies treat senior UX designers as designer level? I have had experience doing creative direction but cos of my job title I always end up doing mundane banner designs. :(

I am going to be bold and ask for this favor openly — I am pretty desperate to transition out of consulting. Looking into a few roles at Salesforce. Can someone be kind enough to refer me? 🙏
