Fortune conducted dozens of interviews over several months with former Apple employees and others in the Apple orbit to try to explain the phenomenon of life inside Apple.
Few agreed to speak on the record; the fear of retribution persists for years.
Once they get talking, however, the former Apple-ites paint a picture of a company that time and again thumbs its nose at modern corporate conventions in ways that let it behave more like a cutting-edge startup than the consumer-electronics behemoth it is. Jobs currently is on his third medical leave in seven years—he survived a rare form of pancreatic cancer and later received a liver transplant—and his absence has only fueled the fascination with him. Jobs is still heavily involved in Apple, of course.
Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs on March 2, , emerged from a medical leave of absence to introduce the second generation of the iPad. True to form, the shepherd to his Apple flock often teaches in parables. This is an acceptable excuse coming from someone who empties trash bins for a living.
The janitor gets to explain why something went wrong.
Senior people do not. Jobs indoctrinates a culture of responsibility by hosting a series of weekly meetings that are the metronome that sets the beat for the entire company.
On Mondays he meets with his executive management team to discuss results and strategy as well as to review nearly every important project in the company.
On Wednesdays he holds a marketing and communications meeting. Simplicity breeds clarity, as Jobs himself explained in a interview with Fortune. I put out an agenda. Eighty percent is the same as it was the last week, and we just walk down it every single week. At Apple there is never any confusion as to who is responsible for what.
The org chart see next page is deceptively straightforward, with none of the dotted-line or matrixed responsibilities popular elsewhere in the corporate world. The result is a command-and-control structure where ideas are shared at the top—if not below. Sony, he has said, had too many divisions to create the iPod.
Apple instead has functions. Photograph by Robyn Twomey For Apple the result is an ability to move nimbly, despite its size.
When it misses a seemingly obvious idea—such as not anticipating the need for an App Store to satisfy the third-party developers who wanted to create programs for the iPhone—it shifts gears quickly to grab the opportunity. Saying no at Apple is as important as saying yes. Jobs himself is the glue that holds this unique approach together.
Everything about this Top meeting is shrouded in secrecy, starting with its very existence. Those tapped to attend are encouraged not to put the meeting on their calendars.
Discussing their participation is a no-no, even internally. Apple goes so far as to have the meeting rooms swept for electronic bugs to stymie snooping competitors. The Top meeting is an important managerial tool for Jobs. He and his chief lieutenants use it to inform a supremely influential group about whereApple is headed.
The Top meeting is part strategic offsite, part legacy-building exercise. Jobs generally kicks things off personally. The book is very interesting and hard to put down. The Apple depicted in this book is unlike the picture often depicted of Silicon Valley companies like Google, where work seems like a party and employees are spoiled rotten.
Apple seems to be a place that is heaven for those that want nothing more than to be completely dedicated to their work. It seems like a tough place to work, but a place where one can be part of things that make a difference. The book begins with avery unique organizational chart showing how the CEO position is at the center of the company and not the top. This is just the start of what sets Apple apart from others.
Steve Jobs impacted more than just computer technology. He made incredible accomplishments in four areas: computers,music, film, and communications. He hada role in every aspect of the company from product development to marketing even proofing e-mails sent out to Apple customers.
His style and insight defined the culture and shaped how employees reacted. However, Apple was not an exciting and funplace for relaxing computer software geeks. The typical office day was incredibly demanding with the potential for negative feedback at every step and brutal confrontations for those lucky enough to have input. Suddenly, new walls would be constructed and if your employee badge would not let you in this area any longer, you were not part of the new secret project.
Employees signed agreements that they could not talk about projects even with their families or they would not only be immediately terminated, but prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. These precautions are inpart because Apple does not focus on making money or taking on every new project idea. Apple definitely does make money, but their goal is to make great products.
Apple also has a very different approach to ideas. Instead of trying to make everything or start a million new projects, they focus on what they do very well.Apple goes so far as to have the meeting rooms swept for electronic bugs to stymie snooping competitors.
It is ironic that if anyone at Apple discloses info it is immediate termination, but yet there are some interesting accounts of private meetings and the details in this book.
On Mondays he meets with his executive management team to discuss results and strategy as well as to review nearly every important project in the company. It is saying noto really great ideas. Lashinsky, a Senior Editor at huge for Fortune, is familiar with the topic chilly: In a disguise tale for the journal entitled The Genius in the back of Steve: may perhaps Operations Whiz Tim prepare dinner Run the corporate sometime he anticipated that Tim cook dinner, then an unknown, might ultimately prevail Steve Jobs as CEO.
