I have frequently discussed the outlook for jobs over the past few weeks, as well as the mood of the market and unemployment. This week, I want to switch course and talk about Jobs — Steve Jobs. I was inspired by a Fortune magazine cover story about Jobs, who was named CEO of the Decade. That’s quite an honor, and frankly, with recent news about the host of toppled executives, it was refreshing to read about his remarkable story, and how he “defied the downturn, cheated death, and changed the world”. It doesn’t take much to recognized his impact. Last night on my flight back to NYC, at least half of the passengers had iPods, Nano’s, and iPhones pumping iTunes into their ears or watching videos to pass the time. His accomplishments have been transformational and one cannot help but marvel at how he took a company that was, for all intents and purposes, busted, and navigated it back to become one of the most successful and admired enterprises of our generation. I decided to cover this story because it highlights a remarkable case study, and one that everyone should read. Here’s the link. Enjoy.
