What do Product Managers do?

The term “Product Management” evolved somewhat. For me, it was a confusing term. Product Managers (AKA PMs) did not fit into either development or marketing roles. I list three good articles that demystify Product Management.
  1. Evolution of the Product Manager
  2. The Product Manager Contribution
  3. How product managers are becoming mini CEOs

There are also two books I like.

Product Management Books - Inspired


My son suggested that I read Inspired.  A few days later, I forgot the title and was searching for books on Kindle, when I found 42 Rules.

product managment books - 42 rules

Reading them, I realized that:

Product managers play the role of glue between customers, products, marketing, sales and engineering.
