PART 2 Managing Innovation > CHAPTER 15 Implement Ideas

CHAPTER 15

Implement Ideas

LEARNING FROM

Steve Jobs

Image

Steve Jobs (born in 1955) has justifiably earned a reputation for innovation. But what makes him truly innovative is not that he is the first person to come up with ideas, but rather that he is the first one to implement them.

Thus, he was not the first person to think of:

Image Developing an affordable computer for the average home.

Image Developing a truly user-friendly computer with an intuitive, mouse-driven user interface.

Image Making the first fully digitally animated movie and turning it into a worldwide hit.

Image Developing the first computer whose design would set new standards.

Image Developing a new generation of music players (whose worldwide success would dwarf that of the Walkman).

Image Developing a cell phone that would epitomize a new generation of smartphones.
