MANAGEMENT is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; LEADERSHIP determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall - Stephen Covey

In Search of Apple?!

It’s indeed a BIG news (dunno whether it’s a signal of sorts!) for the corporate world (atleast the tech-world) to know Dr.Eric Schimdt’s appointment to the Board of Directors of Apple Computers Inc. Steve Jobs was quoted saying “Eric is obviously doing a terrific job as CEO of Google, and we look forward to his contributions as a member of Apple’s board of directors.”

It’s definitely true to learn that Dr. Eric Schmidt has definitely played a pivotal role in re-defining (re-positioning!) GOOGLE from where it was a few years ago to where it is now. It’s truly by any measure a landmark achievement for “Team Google” in the past few years though the challenge remains whether they are able to consistently achieve this (growth, innovation, idea-generation, revenue streams, lucrative business-models, cutting-edge technology, rich talent-scouting et al) in the years to come.

Am sure Schmidt’s appointment to the APPLE board is a blessing in disguise for APPLE Inc and knowing very well that he would immensely contribute (in terms of providing innovative solutions, strategic advice & insights, engaging in thought provoking conversations etc…) to the Board of Apple am a little bit skeptical about the things he would like to bring back (take-aways!) home. Well, only time can tell. Till then, GOOD LUCK to Mr. Schmidt & “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish” for Steve!
