Apple’s stance is pretty consistent throughout – “We’ll decide what’s best, and we’ll do it without interference from those forces that would seek to control us because it is the only way the creativity that drives the company can flourish”.

There’s not an excess of trust between most boards, management teams and investors. It will be interesting to see if they can sustain this element of their culture when Mr. Jobs is no longer at the helm.
