When assessing value generation in any relationship, it is important to know what is valuable to your organization (awareness) and to work together to find the best possible solution (collaboration). As you can see from the visual below, the more you know what is of value to your organization and the more you collaborate with business partners on the best solution, the better your results will be.
When Steve Jobs passed away yesterday, we lost an innovation icon. There has been no one in the last 30 years (or longer) who has done more for consumer technology. The Mac computer, the iPod, the iTouch, the iPhone, the iPad – each of these was revolutionary. People would wait outside Apple stores for hours to be the first to get their hands on these products.
He was an inspiration to a whole generation of workers and made our lives better with his inventions and creations.
We lost a great man with great ideas and his legacy will live on with that little logo we see on all Apple products.
