Moving to management
It looks like you have the right education and experience. Are you comfortable dealing with the techies on one side and the (usually) very non-technical executives on the other? How are your supervisory skills? In my experience, many techies make terrible supervisors, with notable exceptions. If you are comfortable managing people, projects, expectations, budgets, can communicate well with upper management, etc., you are probably a good fit. Expect to spend a large share of your time meeting with people/committees, writing proposals, etc., and much less time doing technical work.
