comment Difference between these 3 manager roles
Apart from the development manager part, I don't really agree with this answer, but I'll concede different companies may use the term differently. A project manager typically deals primarily in schedules, deadlines and resource allocations, and the vision and feature set of the actual product comes from a product manager. A 'program manager' might be some kind of senior product manager that keeps several products aligned. A development manager (or sometimes a tech director) focuses on the tech behind the product, when the product manager deals with end user level functionality.
