Slide 1: 11 Unusual Ways Steve Jobs Made Apple The World's Most Admired Tech Company Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/11-unusual-ways-steve-jobs-made-apple-the-worlds-most-admired-techcompany-2011-8#partner-with-the-enemy-1#ixzz1WaIxrOj5 Partner with the enemy Can you imagine Pepsi and Coca-Cola getting together? Or Verizon and AT&T? That's how strange it was when Apple and Microsoft announced their partnership at the 1997 Macworld Expo. After 12 years of financial loss, Jobs needed to get Apple money, and quickly. So he turned to Bill Gates, who made a $150 million investment in Apple. "The era of competition between Apple and Microsoft is over as far as I'm concerned," Jobs announced. "This is about getting Apple healthy, this is about Apple being able to make incredibly great contributions to the industry and to prosper again.” Put sex in products
Slide 2: A great salesman, Jobs knew the importance of aesthetics; he realized Apple's products looked dated. In 1998, Jobs called a meeting at Apple, sat everyone down and said, "You know what's wrong with this company? The products SUCK -- there's no sex in them." Today, Apple is credited for creating the most beautiful technology, from colorful iMacs to sleek iPads. Change the original vision and business plan Apple began as a computer-only company, but Jobs knew it needed to broaden its approach if it wanted to become truly successful. Apple began expanding its products beyond just computers with the release of Final Cut Pro, followed by MP3 players, music, iPhones and iPads.
Slide 3: Jobs changed the company's name from Apple Computer, Inc. to Apple Inc. in 2007 to symbolize the new, broader vision. Create solutions to impossible roadblocks Other retailers were not giving Apple products adequate positioning. Jobs' solution? The Apple Store. Scattered throughout the world, these successful outlets are now the "darlings of the retail computer industry." Tell customers what they want instead of asking for feedback
Slide 4: Jobs does not use focus groups. Instead, he tells customers what they want before they know they want it. "[Apple has] a great track record for making you want -- and buy -- things you thought you didn't need," says Carl Howe, director of consumer research for Yankee Group. Last year when the iPad was announced, people gawked. Nearly 20 million sales later, it's not so funny. Connect dots Apple releases products that are innovative in and of themselves, but they are also integrated visions. iPods mesh beautifully with iTunes; iPads and iPhones collaborate with the app store. According to Jobs, "creativity is just connecting things." Apple frequently shows how the sum is greater than all of the parts. Don't hire cookie cutter employees
Slide 5: Ivy league graduates aren't the only people who can run companies. "Part of what made the Macintosh great was that the people working on it were musicians, and poets, and artists, and zoologists, and historians who also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world," Jobs has said. Encourage others to think differently Apples' "Think Different" ad campaign in the late 1990's was one of the most effective of all time. It stimulated innovation and reinvention, which is what Apple, today, is all about.
Slide 6: Don't elaborate Simplicity is bliss. Apple's designer Jonathan Ives confirms this strategy: "We are absolutely consumed by trying to develop a solution that is very simple, because as physical beings we understand clarity." Sell dreams, not products Jobs gets people hooked on a feeling. It's not the products his customers buy, it's what the products represent. Remember, people first and foremost care about themselves, so make products they can relate to.
Slide 7: Trust your gut Steve Jobs said in his Stanford commencement speech: "Have the courage to follow your heart and your intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become." -----------------------------------------------Innes (URL) on Aug 30, 8:11 AM said: I would quite easily say that they are tips all business owners and managers could do with looking at. All in all, he worked out a way to be different to say the very least and make it work in a big way. He also made sure that he stayed in touch with what the market wanted whilst selling, as mentioned, a dream.
