## Notes - The product manager (PM) discovers what customers need, studies the market and tendencies, prioritize what to build next, and rallies the team around a product roadmap. - They are highly strategic and have a grand vision of the product and long-term focus. - It's an abstract role because the product development field is abstract. - The core tasks of a PM are: - discover the business' core; - define the personas and their pain and how to solve it; - prioritize what to build, ideally choosing what generates more value faster with fewer resources; - keep the team aware of the product status; - define the right metrics for the product. - PMs have a closer relationship with other departments: engineering, marketing, design, and finances. ## References - [Kalo Yankulov.
