What makes you a Product Manager?

What are the skill sets required to be a Product Manager?

UX

Technology

Business

Better product managers lead to better products, and with better products in our lives, we all ultimately win. Unlike most other roles in an organization, when a PM stops coming to work, your team might not feel the effects right away. Nevertheless, over time the lack of PM’s expertise will shine through in the products delivered to market. Honestly, almost anybody with a decent technical and business sense can be a Product Manager. However very few can become great Product Managers.
