Steve Jobs talks about managing people

This two minute video is from a longer interview that Steve Jobs gave.  This snippet focuses on Apple’s organisational culture and Jobs’ philosophy with regards how people should be managed.  It would make a good OM Tutorial Activity i.e. starting point for a discussion about why Apple is run this way, and whether or not other firms could, or should, be organised like this.

One Response to Steve Jobs talks about managing people

  1. I suggested this as a Tutorial Activity. It would be even better if this two minute clip could be contrasted with another leader whose style was very different, albeit both managing organisations with a ‘power culture’. At the I was thinking of Ron Dennis of McLaren, and I tried to find clip of him talking about delegation and teamwork, but failed. Yesterday it occurred to me that Gordon Ramsey would be a great contrast, and I’m sure there of numerous clips of him demonstrating his style.
