Lasse's list is a "best of." I also liked
Highsmith: Agile Project Management, and
Schwaber: Agile Project Management with Scrum
I like Lasse's generalization. Other characteristics of *Product* development versus projects that I've noticed:

- Products have multiple releases
- Products tend to keep the same team together
- Products are revenue generating, not cost saving

I'm also seeing many IT shops split up their development into "products" and "projects." Products are those areas where they choose to create a competitive advantage, something they feel will help them win more business (e.g. a new provisioning system for distribution to channel partners). Projects are run in areas they want to achieve technical parity (e.g. implement a new packaged CRM application).

Hope that helps.
