Steve Jobs – Today he would have turned 61. The Harvard Business Review called him “the world’s best performing CEO”, the Wall Street Journal praised him as “Person of the Decade” and Fortune magazine proclaimed him as “The CEO of the decade”. He was able to transform seven industries: phones, music, personal computing, tablet computing, animated movies, digital publishing and retail stores. He surely deserves to be added to the list of great innovators, such as Henry Ford, Walt Disney, Thomas Edison etc. He co-founded Apple Inc. in 1976 from his parents’ garage and was kicked out of his own company in 1985. He came back to rescue the same company in 1997 when it was near bankruptcy. By October 2011 (before he died) he was able to turn Apple into the world’s most valuable company. Respect, Mr Jobs! What are the lessons from Steve Jobs that we can learn?
