I had an opportunity six or seven years ago to move into the private sector and become a product manager. Looking at the salaries cited in this article, I wonder about the choice I made (though I would probably have had to be a lot less public about my work). Anyhow, I've always been interested in the role of 'product manager' ever since (the way I was interested in 'information architect' in the early years). This article questions whether product managers need to be able to code. It's a pretty good summary - in my own case, I do know how to code, and I can see how it created some of the issues raised in this article, such as role confusion and inefficient use of time.
