Marty Cagan is the best thinker about product management out there. His blog / newsletter coming out of his Silicon Valley Product Group is great reading; today's piece was typically excellent, and contained this particular gem: "Don’t confuse someone that has strong design sensibilities with strong design skills.  Recognizing and appreciating strong design, and being able to create strong design, are very different things."
