  4. 4. UX Leadership "(Steve Jobs) told me once that part of the reason he wanted to be CEO was so that nobody could tell him that he wasn't allowed to participate in the nitty-gritty of product design. He was right there in the middle of it. All of it.“ – Glenn Reid "If I am going to be at the top of the car company, I want to be the owner-chef -- with knowledge not just of its vehicles but their ingredients. I taste my car, and if it tastes good, I provide it to the customer." - Akio Toyoda, Toyota “(David Karp) doesn’t need anyone else telling him what’s best for the product. Many people, myself included, have tried to convince him to go different directions, and we’ve been proven wrong every time. Tumblr is David, and David is Tumblr.” – Marco Arment • Bill Gates on Steve Jobs CEO as Lead Product Designer
