  • The Road Ahead In the 1996 edition of The Road Ahead, Microsoft Chairman and CEO Bill Gates laid out his vision of an interconnected world built around the Internet. Based on the premise that life will be transformed by the convergence of inexpensive computing and inexpensive communications, Gates drew from his experience at the center of the personal computer revolution to give insights on the growth, evolution and impact of technology. Inside Out To commemorate Microsoft's 25th anniversary, the company published Inside Out, a book written by and for employees which highlights the products, people and culture that transformed Bill Gates' and Paul Allen's vision for personal computing into reality. Each chapter of the book features an introductory essay by Bill Gates, reflecting on the company's history and looking ahead to future opportunities. Business @ the Speed of Thought Business @ the Speed of Thought was written to inspire you to demand - and get - more from technology, enabling you and your company to respond faster to your customers, adapt to changing business demands, and prosper in the digital economy. Business @ the Speed of Thought is not a technical book. It shows how business and technology are now inextricably linked. Each chapter is structured around a business or management issue, showing how digital processes can dramatically improve your results. In 1999, Gates wrote Business @ the Speed of Thought, a book that shows how computer technology can solve business problems in fundamentally new ways. The book was published in 25 languages and is available in more than 60 countries. Business @ the Speed of Thought has received wide critical acclaim, and was listed on the best-seller lists of the New York Times, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal and Gates' previous book, The Road Ahead, published in 1995, held the No. 1 spot on the New York Times' bestseller list for seven weeks. Gates has donated the proceeds of both books to non-profit organizations that support the use of technology in education and skills development. In addition to his love of computers and software, Gates founded Corbis, which is developing one of the world's largest resources of visual information - a comprehensive digital archive of art and photography from public and private collections around the globe. He is also a member of the board of directors of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., which invests in companies engaged in diverse business activities.

  • Steve was overconfident & did not see Bill & MS as serious threat to Apple. Soon after the release of MAC, Jobs asked MS to develop s/w for MAC OS. Gates obliged & proceeded to copy MAC & launch better version of MAC, Windows. This cocky attitude of Jobs and lack of management skill became threat to Apple.

  • John Scully ( CEO of PepsiCo.) replaced Steve as CEO of Apple, Apple fell from grace and became a niche market player, i.e. its market share was very small compared to other companies.

    33. 33. <ul><li>Jobs said, &quot;Our primary mission is to establish NextStep as a leading operating system in the Nineties.&quot; Now, Jobs invisions NextStep will revolutionize the computer industry by its operating system software which incorporates a hot technology. It's called object-oriented programming (OOP), and OOP lets programmers write software in a fraction of the usual time. </li></ul>Jobs saying :
    34. 34. <ul><li>Inspiration came - Beginning of September 1985 when he had lunch with </li></ul><ul><li>Paul Berg - a Nobel laureate in biochemistry at Standford University. </li></ul><ul><li>Berg said most universities did not have the necessary computers and software. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;That's when I started to really think about this stuff and get my wheels turning again,&quot; says Jobs. </li></ul>
    35. 35. <ul><li>On September 12, 1985 Steve rose in the board meeting and said in a flay – </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;I've been thinking a lot and it's time for me to get on with my life. It's obvious that I've got to do something. I'm thirty years old.” offering to resign as chairman. </li></ul>
    36. 36. <ul><li>&quot;In my 20 years in the industry, I have never seen a revolution as profound as this. You can build software literally five to ten times faster, and that software is more reliable, easier to maintain, and more powerful,&quot; says Jobs. </li></ul>
    37. 37. <ul><li>NextStep squeezed its way into the field of being a good platform for companies to build object oriented programming </li></ul><ul><li>Jobs believes Microsoft has not transformed itself into an agent for improving things or a company that will lead the next revolution in software development. </li></ul>
    38. 38. <ul><li>Jobs has become very concerned because he sees Microsoft competing very fiercely to put a lot of companies out of business. </li></ul><ul><li>This is hurting innovation in the computer industry. Jobs feels the computer industry needs an alternative to Microsoft's software in computer systems. </li></ul><ul><li>He hopes people will turn to NextStep software. </li></ul>
    39. 39. Bill Vs Steve <ul><li>Understands Limitations of oneself </li></ul><ul><li>Delegates things. </li></ul><ul><li>Right people at right places at right time. </li></ul><ul><li>Understands the Trend & needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Dictatorial </li></ul><ul><li>Employee Relationship? </li></ul><ul><li>Demanding </li></ul><ul><li>Understands silent needs. </li></ul>
    40. 40. Bill Vs. Steve <ul><li>Employee management. </li></ul><ul><li>Persuasive & Tactical. </li></ul><ul><li>Organized. </li></ul><ul><li>Ethics? </li></ul><ul><li>Can not anticipate Threat. </li></ul><ul><li>Conflict management? </li></ul><ul><li>Overconfident & not tactical. </li></ul><ul><li>Learns from mistakes. </li></ul>
