Requirements and Specifications
In a July entry, I wrote that product design is not part of a product manager's role. A product manager specifies the requirements, but not the design, for a product. In one of his comments, Steve Johnson included a link to an excellent article he wrote about the distinction between requirements and specifications. Whether you are a product manager or a company executive trying to understand the proper roles within the product team, it's well worth the read.
