Sometimes I see people use project and product manager interchangeably. If this is indeed the case right now, then yes. When I was a product manager, I was coordinating a bunch of things that mostly did not require a technical understanding of the product. On occasion, it was helpful that I understood how databases worked but most of the time it was gathering feedback, figuring out priorities, and trying to compromise between a bunch of stakeholders.
