As someone who makes a substantial part of his living as a
product manager, I'd like to qualify this statement. A product
manager, at least as I see the role, has to be balanced between
the technical and the marketing side. On the one hand, you have
to have some in-depth knowledge of the product, as well as
something about product development cycles and what motivates the
geeks. On the other, you have to be aware of any rival products
or companies, and know something about marketing and production.
This balance is what makes product management a natural extension
of technical writing for me.
