Time for a team meeting at Apple?

The dismissal of two key execs at Apple this week is the subject of this RetailWire posting:

The problems at Apple point out Steve Jobs’s failure to develop a true succession plan even though he knew his health was in jeopardy for years. Tim Cook has been operating in Jobs’s long shadow for the past year but appears finally to be taking control of the company. This starts with his management team, and by confronting the dysfunctional egos that made major missteps with the iOS 6.0 launch and The Apple Store.

As to Ron Johnson, I wouldn’t be so quick to credit him (and blame his successor)…The Apple Store is clearly a product of Steve Jobs’s vision as much as Johnson’s operating skill. JCP has been more than a match for Johnson’s management talents so far.
