Is "product vision" an important quality for an IT leader? 

Leadership Obviously! Even though there could be a Head of Product in your organization. Being in constant vision, direction & involvement of the product roadmap will give the IT leader the knowledge of which technology to be used in each version of the sw, as well as to know the why, when and what the IT will be building based on the needs of the users, the revenue strategy & the competition itself.
