THE STEVE JOBS WAY - iWay iLeadership for a New Generation

“I could be doing a lot of other things with my life,” he said. “But the Macintosh is going to change the world. I believe that, and I’ve chosen people for the team who believe it, too.”

As Simple and Uncomplicated as Possible Steve had decided that the cell phone being developed at Apple would have only a single button. His engineers kept telling him over and over in their meetings that it was not possible for a cell phone to have only one button. You could not turn it on and off, control the volume, switch between functions, go to the Internet and use all the other features the phone was to have, if you had only a single control button. Steve was deaf to their complaints. He kept demanding , in effect, “The phone will have only one button . Figure it out.”

Tapping Talent In searching for talent, you mustn’t be put off by first impressions. You must find the real person, sometimes discovering a pirate where you least expected.

Rewards for the Pirates Mac buyers would never see the signatures inside the case or even know they were there. But the engineers knew it, and that meant a lot to them. Even to this day, every time they see a classic Mac in someone’s garage or in a computer museum, they have the satisfaction of knowing their names are inside.

BECOMING COOL: A DIFFERENT VIEW OF SELLING Getting the Equation Right Apple is a prime example of the rewards that come when you get the equation right: products that people truly want and great branding, which is the door opener for waking people up to the products.

STEVE JOBS PRINCIPLES • BE PASSIONATE about each project you work on. Be driven by an OPPORTUNITY and create a product for it. Always be open to TALENT who can help Ensure that the products represent you and YOUR TRAITS as a person Be really HONEST with yourself about your products DON’T LISTEN to people who say it can’t be done KEEP INNOVATING to get closer and closer to your ideal.

EVANELIZING INNOVATION Innovation is not only a team sport, it needs to be evangelized — both internally and for outside partners. When you have opened up innovation to outside resources, they need to operate as part of your team. The Mac group practiced it in the early days, when a team of “evangelists” was out beating the drum with developers to create applications.

ACHIEVING THE DEFINITION OF COOL There is nothing more cool in the world of business than creating a product that millions of people immediately want, and many who don’t have are envious of those who do. And there is, as well, nothing more cool than being a person who can imagine and create a product like that. Add one more element: creating a series of these waycool products not as separate and isolated efforts but all parts of a high-level overriding concept. HAVE THE VISION. GET THE RIGHT PEOPLE. TO DO IT THE STEVE JOBS WAY. iWAY.

- Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead • “But you see," said Roark quietly, "I have, let’s say, sixty years to live. Most of that time will be spent working. I’ve chosen the work I want to do. If I find no joy in it, then I’m only condemning myself to sixty years of torture. And I can find the joy only if I do my work in the best way possible to me. But the best is a matter of standards—and I set my own standards. I inherit nothing. I stand at the end of no tradition. I may, perhaps, stand at the beginning of one.”
