I found this recent article on the evolution of the product manger role of particular interest. I'm certainly of the opinion that the value added by a product manager goes far beyond execution and overseeing the engineering of a product. Instead, there is a growing need for product teams to work more closely with other departments in an organisation, with a particular focus on using data to drive the product of the future. I agree with the prediction made by McKinsey that utilising insight from customers as well as the client facing departments of an organisation, will result in a far superior product offering.

Product managers are the glue that bind the many functions that touch a product—engineering, design, customer success, sales, marketing, operations, finance, legal, and more. They not only own the decisions about what gets built but also influence every aspect of how it gets built and launched.
