I am writing a paper on how Apple is organized to stimulate Innovation. Now that the succession plan is in place, how will Apple continue to identify, incubate and evaluate ideas. Will the organizational structure change? How can the recipe stay the same if the main ingredient is no longer their. What impact is this having on culture?

Does anyone have any insight into their new strategy?

Any information or articles you can pass along would be greatly appreciated.

I have a friend high up at Apple. I'm told that Tim Cook has retained the services of a psychic so he can consult Steve Jobs' spirit for major decisions. In the event that they are unable to reach him, they just put the work on hold. I expect all products going forward to be delayed significantly because of this, but the products coming from Apple will retain Jobs' eye for detail.

OP:
Do a literature search. There have been articles published on how as soon as Jobs first got sick, Apple hired some senior academics to study the "Creative DNA" of Jobs and Apple, and work out how to codify this and teach it to the next generation of Apple management.

Perhaps what may work is for Apple to search their ranks for an up-and-comer who can be groomed, allowed to innovate and be conspicuously phased into the public view as Apple's new archetype.

...Albeit he or she may (will?) only attain a mere fraction of Job's iconicism!

May he Rest in Peace.

Why don't you first tell us your theory and then we can critique it.

Can u change your DNA? NO, Apple need to find a staff with similar DNA as Jobs, but who?
