Suggestions on what after Sr TPM?

Hi All, I have been a developer for few years before I moved to TPM domain. I’m in TPM domain from last 4+ years. Overall experience 10 + years.

My question is, what is your advise on how I can move my career forward? What is next from this role ?

I tried searching on linkedin “Manager, Technical Program Management” and barely found 2 jobs with that title.

I’m wondering what’s next and where can I go from here? What are the potential options/career paths?

I talked to few friends of mine and it looks like in my current role I’m doing what a lot of engineering managers do. He manages projects, strategy, team and design decisions. Currently I do the same in my role as well. Should I explore that option?

    Those are secondary/tertiary responsibilities of an EM. Supporting and growing (or managing out) the engineers on the team is #1 and you will be grilled on your experience and capacity to do that. At least at Google and FB.
