You make a good point about driving decisions vs just documenting and articulating decisions. I try not to use words like “product management drives the team” because I really like the notion that a product manager is more like the guy in the back of a river raft guiding and gently course correcting as the team plows ahead. That said, framing the problem and the data and inputs is very very important.
