Believe this is the path folks get pointed to if not on the PPMD track and is supposed to be a M or SM equivalent. (There's ahso a specialist master, but can't remember if SM or SL is higher.) I've only worked with a SL who was a pursuit lead. He knew his stuff and was quite busy managing multiple proposals at once, though I didn't have the impression he was pulling all nighters and working weekends

Specialist leader is actually MD track so most of what you've written is incorrect overall. SpLs still have sales and delivery targets and are SM equivalents but are usually experts in their area. SpMaster is a Manager equivalent.

uplifting

OP, SpL is a challenging role with sales, managed, and practice contribution expectations. It's a level below PPMD.

This is very helpful! Thanks SM1!

SM1 perhaps different in enabling areas? We've heard chatter that these specialist roles will be used to offer different career paths for individual contributors ascending the ranks vs those who promote into people leadership roles maintaining the traditional M and SM designations

Thanks both! I’ve been told it’s not an IC role but a SME role with sales targets - just that it focuses more on the tech strategy and less on operations/engagement level stuff. I’m wondering how demanding it will be compared to my current role…

Need some advice. I am super burnt out due to work, covid, etc. My firm offers a 3month internal rotation that is very popular - you keep full pay while having predictable hours & no client work. I’ve always been interested in it and the timing seems right. My main Partner is NOT supportive and says I should take medical leave instead or drop to part-time. He doesn’t have a project for me to work on but doesn’t want me doing anything else. Should I take the role at a risk to this relationship?
