The Traits of a Terrific Product Manager

Your product manager operates as the fulcrum of your business. They balance the needs and demands of every stakeholder on one side and the resources of your tech team on the other.

In this post at AKF Partners, Steve Mason breaks down the differences between a serviceable product manager and a transcendent one.
