Example text

Eventually, I myself was forced out by a dull, ruthless engineering manager I found to be clueless about design and culture. Rather than guiding the engine of Apple’s innovation, Sculley and Gassée’s mission seemed focused on changing everything Steve Jobs had valued, by moving the organization from the cutting edge to the middle of the road. That decision was a train wreck in the making—and a huge waste of creative potential. Then, Apple’s poor decisions began to play out in the marketplace. In the early 1990s, Sculley, who had assumed the role of Apple’s chief technologist, pushed the incompletely developed Newton handheld computer to market.

I’ve had ample exposure to leadership’s struggle on the path toward innovation. Design careers are formed, after all, through work at those earliest developmental stages of innovation, where decision-making proc­esses and inner-office mechanisms are truly tested. To illustrate how leadership succeeds—and fails—at the innovation process, let me share with you some of my observations and experiences from the front lines of the business/design partnership. ° maintaining strategic focus and creative capital Apple’s struggle to maintain its strategic focus offers an excellent example of the challenges companies face in dealing with evolving leadership, economies, and marketplaces.

By then, Louis Vuitton bags and suitcases already had reached cult status with fashionsavvy customers—especially those from Japan. Lines commonly extended into the street outside the Louis Vuitton store in Paris, and the company maintained a two-bag-per-sale limit to prevent customers from reselling the luggage elsewhere.
