The news of Steve Jobs illness wiped $20 billion off Apple’s share price. Some things are self evident: that anyone with a heart would wish the man well. And that it’s almost impossible to think of another individual who has been such a prominent charm for a brand. Also clear is that his gifts as strategist, product and design driver make him much more than a figurehead
• Steve Jobs was raised as a prime example of this. The personal computer by Apple, the Macintosh, which uses a mouse and a simple graphic user interface (GUI) was actually a concept Jobs “borrowed” from Xerox’s innovation centre in Silicon Valley.• The Macintosh was a success but Jobs was hated in Silicon Valley, a place which prides innovation above all else. The act of appropriating his idea from Xerox meant Jobs risked his reputation for a product that worked.
• Jobs negotiation strategies are very well reflected in his general persona. Tactics per se will not land anyone in his shoes. He has an unwavering confidence in everything hes doing, and his track record very much speaks for him. He makes things happen and, definitely in business, nobody can argue with results. At the same time he carries himself with an air dignity and humbleness in the public eye, which is a manner of social aesthetics. He knows how to appeal to his audience.
