An Inside Look: Steve Jobs Teaches Business Strategy 101

An Inside Look: Steve Jobs Teaches Business Strategy 101 | Management | Scoop.it

With some ingenious strategy, Steve Jobs and his team took about 15 years to transform Apple into the most valuable company in the world.

 

But while we are all witness to the end result, there was a lot of research and heavy thinking that went into developing that strategy. What if we could get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the Apple visionary at work?

 

We can.

The 10 Things You Must Do to Make Hiring Top Talent No. 1

The 10 Things You Must Do to Make Hiring Top Talent No. 1 | Management | Scoop.it

Over a 10 year period from 1991 to 2001 my firm made over 400 presentations to groups of CEOs at emerging and entrepreneurial companies. The presentations were largely the same. All focused on how to select people to grow the company.

 

One big idea was to map the types of people the company was hiring to its business strategy. The other point, while not as grand, was more important: If hiring top talent is important to your company's growth make this the primary measure of how you reward and promote your hiring managers. Although 90% of the CEOs believed in the concept, few did anything to make this part of their company's culture.

Hiring top talent is not number 1 Enhancing the gifts (talents) of the people already there is number 1.

5% of the Challenge Is the Strategy. 95% Is the Execution

5% of the Challenge Is the Strategy. 95% Is the Execution | Management | Scoop.it
Imagine it’s your first day on the job as chief operating officer of a global manufacturing company in a foreign country. You don’t speak the language, you don’t know where the company’s plants are located, and you don’t even know how to make a phone call. That’s what it was like for Carlos Ghosn when he took over at Japan’s then-floundering Nissan Motor Corp. in 1999. The cultural challenges would have been difficult enough, but Nissan was then some $20 billion in debt after 27 years of declining market share.

Adhering to cultural norms is not always the right strategy according to the head of Renault-Nissan.

Management Intuition For The Next 50 Years

Management Intuition For The Next 50 Years | Management | Scoop.it

Intuition forms over time. When McKinsey began publishing the Quarterly, in 1964, a new management environment was just beginning to take shape. On April 7 of that year, IBM announced the System/360 mainframe, a product with breakthrough flexibility and capability. Then on October 10, the opening ceremonies of the Tokyo Olympic Games, the first in history to be telecast via satellite around the planet, underscored Japan’s growing economic strength. Finally, on December 31, the last new member of the baby-boom generation was born.

What’s the future of strategy setting, decision making, and management? We examine how the collision of rapid emerging-markets growth, technological disruption, and widespread aging is upending long-held assumptions.

Peter van Cuylenburg's curator insight, September 9, 2014 8:33 PM

Here is an article with massive implications for future workplaces and the people who will be employed there.  In our schools today we will have to consider the implications for our students. The education we provide would depend on flexible technological formats, developing inter-personal skills, enriching creativity, building clarity into ethical frameworks and so on.  Lots to think about.
