Steve Jobs and a BusPosted: February 13, 2011
“I mean, some people say, ‘Oh, God, if [Jobs] got run over by a bus, Apple would be in trouble.’ And, you know, I think it wouldn’t be a party, but there are really capable people at Apple. My job is to make the whole executive team good enough to be successors, so that’s what I try to do.”
– Steve Jobs
Anyone who has doubts about Apple’s ability to function without Steve at the helm, just read this quote. The man has a plan – he’s had one since ’97. There’s no way he’ll let his pride and joy fade away when he eventually does retire – he may be mortal, but I’m willing to bet that he’s set up Apple to transcend that limitation.
