STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP AND INNOVATION AT APPLE INC ..
Steve will be missed as the CEO, but obviously will retain an influence as a board member. I have the impression that if Steve Jobs recommends Tim Cook, then we (the Apple fans) will be in great hands in the future.
Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow ..
The case talks about how employees at Apple had to run their own show and work in a challenging and creative environment. Apple adopted a style that was not too formal or hierarchical and a more results-driven approach which worked best for them. The case also focuses on the career opportunities and employability security, compensation, and benefits offered to the employees by the company. The case explains how Apple fostered a culture of secrecy. The demand for absolute secrecy and insistence on control were infused into the company culture right from the beginning. The various dysfunctional aspects of Apple's culture which led the company to the brink of disaster are also discussed.
While some appreciated Apple's culture saying that it valued creative people, others felt that it was dysfunctional from a management standpoint and was largely influenced by its CEO Steve Jobs (Jobs) who had a very quirky style. Experts felt that Apple's obsession with maintaining secrecy could hurt the company and its brand in the new milieu. They felt that the biggest challenge for Apple was to move out from under the shadow of Jobs. The performance of the company in his absence was a key concern for all stakeholders, they said. The case concludes by discussing whether a change in the company's culture is required to remain competitiveness in the long run.

MGMT 370: Apple Management Functions - Prezi
Sculley’s tenure was marred by infighting among top managers and expensive projects that flopped in the marketplace. (Remember the Apple Newton?) He boosted the price of the Macintosh when personal computer prices were falling. The board ousted him in 1993, when Apple was slipping toward irrelevance or worse.
