Project Managers  Vs.  Product Managers

Are Project Managers and Product Managers two sides of the same coin?

Uh-Huh! They can’t be further apart!

Project Managers define the When and How of product development.

Project Managers answer:   - What resources are needed? Dependencies?  - When will the project get delivered?  - Who is going to do what?

Product Managers define the What and Why of the product.

Product Managers answer:   - What problem does this solve?  - What and why are you building this?  - What will the benefits be?

"The role of a Product Manager is to discover a product that is valuable, useable, and feasible."

- Marty Cagan, Author
