The 10 Commandments of Steve Jobs [Infographic]
Newsweek’s The Daily Beast published an interesting infographic on Steve Jobs and his supposed playbook for managing the creative process at Apple.
The “10 Commandments of Steve” according to Daily Beast are as follows:
- Go for perfect
- Tap the experts
- Be ruthless
- Shun focus groups
- Never stop studying
- Keep your secrets
- Keep teams small
- Use more carrot than stick
- Prototype to the extreme

Steve Jobs is widely accepted to be one of the greatest business minds of all time, and the success of Apple (and Pixar) are just two examples of his contributions and achievements. It’ll be interesting to see how closely these ideals are followed now that Steve stepped down from the CEO position, but I’d bet things won’t change much at Apple for quite some time as Tim Cook takes the reigns to lead Apple.
