Steve Jobs: “Apple is an incredibly collaborative environment”
“Do You know how many committees, we have in Apple?” “Zero, we have no committees”
“We are organized like a start-up, Apple is the biggest start-up on the planet”
“We’re great at figuring out how to divide things up into these great teams we have”
I am not sure I am a fan of Steve Jobs’ management style, often on the border between motivational and abusive. But he was way ahead of his time on the topic of business agility and under his guidance Apple obtained astonishing results, outperforming the market, and the competition. Twelve years after he left Apple due to a terrible illness, his words are still refreshing and inspiring.
