Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Product Managers and Product Owners?
A Product Manager is responsible for discovering and understanding what the user is looking for, and then using those insights to guide product development.
This is closely related to a Product Owner, who is in charge of maximizing the value of the product by ensuring that the team is always optimizing to meet user needs. This includes creating and managing a backlog to both track feature requests and implement those features.
Both of these differ from Product Marketing, in which a Product Marketer is responsible for positioning the product in a way that best suits the market. Further, all of these roles work closely with product design, which envisions and optimizes the user experience of the product.
