Interview: fascinating for Apple followers, culture mavens or business buzzards. I think even systems or design folks will find it worthy and enlightening. As a consumer and user who lived this era, Sculley’s reflections are even entertaining. Despite their rift, it is obvious even Sculley thinks Jobs is a Titan.
Here’s a full transcript of the interview with John Sculley on the subject of Steve Jobs.
It’s long but worth reading because there are some awesome insights into how Jobs does things.
It’s also one of the frankest CEO interviews you’ll ever read. Sculley talks openly about Jobs and Apple, admits it was a mistake to hire him to run the company and that he knows little about computers. It’s rare for anyone, never mind a big-time CEO, to make such frank assessment of their career in public.
