[Imagine you are running a restaurant with nasi lemak, roti chennai and mee goreng on the menu. Say, for nasi lemak, who is in charge of this 'product'? Who decides on the taste. presentation, ingredients etc. Mostly it is the chef, but since the chef does not interact with customers much, he or she may not be ideal. On the other hand, waiting staff are not familiar with food preparation, costing and kitchen logistics. This is where a 'product manager' comes in handy, to tie together everything that go towards making a product.]
