Wired cover story highlights Steve Jobs' effect on tech leadersLate Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is the topic of Wired's August cover story as the popular publication investigates how the tech guru's management style affects industry leaders.
The story, titled "Am I Steve Jobs," offers lessons to be learned from the late Apple CEO's management style and samples heavily from Walter Isaacson's official biography "Steve Jobs," peppering in interviews with technology entrepreneurs and CEOs, reports Business Insider.
Despite having lost a long battle with pancreatic cancer in October of 2011, Jobs' legacy is still felt in the tech community as his innovative and sometimes aggressive leadership tactics continue to spark discussion.
In a recent interview, Isaacson noted that Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg modeled his early management style after Jobs, an anecdote that is also seen in the author's biography. Zuckerberg reportedly looked up to Jobs and had a number of both professional and private interactions with him as Facebook began to morph into the de facto standard in social media.
