In some cases it does, in others - less so. I speak with my client (employer?) at most twice a week on IM. It depends on what the product is. In systems development product objective could be pretty well defined early on, and everything else is essentially a direct derivation of that.
Honestly, this job would be perfect if only it took less than 70% of my waking hours
