What makes a good product manager?

I became a product manager for only 2 years or so, not that long as it sounds, however, the popular role has become so overwhelming not that long ago neither. So what does it exactly mean?

People often like to define a terminology in order to start with a topic, obviously Google or Baidu can be used to find out the exact answer, whereas in this post, I am going to list out the things I concluded from my past experience.

understand the product positioning

Positioning might refer to marketing as it is vital to your customers/audience, I will talk about the relation between product and marketing later on.

The initial social response has been overwhelmed, since comparing to other countries, we have already been left behind. Till now, it is time for us to catch up the game.
