Comments on: Who’s Watching Steve Jobs? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/07/23/whos-watching-steve-jobs/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: John Tantillo "The Marketing Doctor" http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/07/23/whos-watching-steve-jobs/#comment-351412 Thu, 24 Jul 2008 15:33:46 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/07/23/whos-watching-steve-jobs/#comment-351412 Given that Gateway and Oracle and many other entrepreneur-driven tech companies have struggled with succession issues, Jobs can lead the pack by introducing the kind of succession strategy that none of his peers have been able to implement. Perhaps he can unveil a management structure that ensures that product and marketing innovation will be a permanent part of Apple no matter who is ultimately in charge. Whatever the plan is, it must have the dynamic Jobs’ stamp and show that the brand essentials of both Jobs and Apple will be preserved and honored in the future.

Note to Steve Jobs: You always will be better off being up front about an illness or problem, even if it isn’t anyone else’s business. Whatever it is, it can’t be as bad as the stuff people are going to make up when you leave them guessing.
