Product Manager role from the Engineering Manager perspective

The aim of the talk will be to highlight several most important activities, items and points in which Product Manager is needed to contribute and support the delivery process, from the Engineering / Project / Delivery Manager perspective. The focus here should be on WHY. Why the product manager needs to know the product well? Why the product manager should understand the correlation between business and technical aspects? Why the product manager should be good in managing stakeholders expectations? Why the product manager should be measuring costs vs benefits for features? What could happen if client is driving the delivery process? What happens when one of these above is missing? All these questions will be covered with an appropriate examples.
