Product Manager vs Project Manager

Have you ever been confused who is product or project manager? I was in both roles, but at the same time, I was really confused about the terms at some point.
Project Manager

  • Target – project.
  • The lifecycle exists from requirements to launch.
  • The project should be done on time with the defined budget and with a certain level of quality.
  • How to organize the work with the dev team?
  • How to plan the development?
  • What are the milestones?
  • What risks do we have?
  • Launch – this is where the project ends.

Product Manager

  • Target – product.
  • Which customer’s pain should we as a company select and resolve?
  • Will the future product support company’s strategy?
  • Will customers pay for my product?
  • How much money they will pay?
  • How to position the product? How to differentiate the product?
  • How to articulate the value?
  • Launch – this is where the product starts living.
