QOTD: Sculley on Steve Jobs and Success by Design
“The thing that separated Steve Jobs from other people like Bill Gates–Bill was brilliant too, but Bill was never interested in great taste. He was always interested in being able to dominate a market. He would put out whatever he had to put out there to own that space. Steve would never do that. Steve believed in perfection….When I think about different kinds of CEOs–CEOs who are great leaders, CEOs who are great turnaround artists, great deal negotiators, great people motivators–but the great skill that Steve has is he’s a great designer. Everything at Apple can be best understood through the lens of designing.”
– John Sculley, one-time CEO of Apple, offers his insights into the secrets of Steve Jobs’s success in a long interview with “Cult of Mac” author Leander Kahney.
