UX Organization

My company is considering where UX is placed. I found a number of articles on the topic, and have read Institutionalizing Usability by HFI's founder (and I was employed by HFI in 2008-2009). I'd like to discuss how companies of 2,000-10,000 employees organize user experience:

- Title and role of senior-most UX officer

- Distribution of resources (single cost center vs. matrix)

- UX team make-up and organization

- Key benefits and challenges

If you know of articles, blogs, or slideshares, please post them here too.

UI Standards within the organization

Hi All,

I've been reading this post on UI Trends about questioning the use of UI standards with the organization.

Personally I do believe that UI standards are needed within a company but they need to leave room for creativity and change.

What's your feeling?

What is a subset of the other?

In my organization, there is a simmering debate that Interaction
Design is not a subset of User Experience, where as people think that
it's just the other way around.
