UX Generalists or Specialists?

This is a question that every UX professional faces at some point: is it better to be a UX generalist—for example, practicing both user research and UX design—or is it better to specialize—perhaps in a specific domain? Companies often question whether a team of UX generalists or a mix of specialists is best.

    I guess I would pick a generalist as its humans that use a UI. What changes is very specialised domains (defense, healthcare) where the requirements in error are different. But how many times are you gonna design the F22 controls?

    FYI, Your Google social login has issues.

  3. Personally, I have a huge problem with those who are so specialists that it becomes difficult to justify their presence. For specialists, consulting is a better career option.
