Get rid of the crappy stuff
When he got the promotion to CEO in 2006, Nike’s Mark Parker asked Apple CEO Steve Jobs if he had any advice.
“Get rid of the crappy stuff,” Parker says Jobs told him.
That sounds like potent advice for any leader – and any organization – with some assumptions:
1. There’s a leader.
2. There’s something left once the crappy stuff is removed.
