« Harnessing Global Talent | Main | Those Damn Kids »

Their top four lessons include:

  1. "Not Invented Here"  is very welcome.
  2. Design around user needs and not the technology.
  3. (Sometimes) you have to lead rather than listen to customers.
  4. Fail wisely -- almost every Apple success follows a failure.
