<p>Good Product Manager/Bad Product Manager
Good product managers know the market, the product, the product line and the

direction informally. Good product managers gather information informally.
Good product managers create leveragable collateral, FAQs, presentations,
white papers. Bad product managers complain that they spend all day answering
questions for the sales force and are
