  • “We care about every worker in our worldwide supply chain… What we will not do – and never have done – is stand still or turn a blind eye to problems in our supply chain. On this you have my word.” ~ Tim Cook, Apple CEO Tim Cook Supply Chain guru.
  • Too often people think about intuition as the same as relying on luck or faith. At least as I see it, nothing could be further from the truth. Intuition can tell you, of the doors that are open to you, which one you should walk through. But intuition cannot prepare you for what’s on the other side of that door.” ~ Tim Cook.
  • “Apple has changed every day since I have been here. But the DNA of the company, the thing that makes our heart beat, is a maniacal focus on making the best products in the world. Not good products, or a lot of products, but the absolute best products in the world. In creating these great products we focus on enriching people’s lives – a higher cause for the product.” ~ Tim Cook, Supply Chain Guru.
  • “Let your joy be in your journey – not in some distant goal.” ~ Tim Cook, CEO Apple.
  • “Creativity and innovation are something you can’t flowchart out.” ~ Tim Cook.
  • “My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.” ~ Steve Jobs.
  • “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ~Steve Jobs.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, Supply Chain Expert

Apple CEO Tim Cook is following Steve Jobs as the top person at Apple.  This is no easy task considering Steve Jobs’ cult following.  Steve Jobs did amazing things at Apple and Tim Cook is doing very well also.  Apple continues to do amazing things under Tim Cook.

Tim Cook was Apple’s Chief Procurement Officer and he now has the top position at Apple.  Steve Jobs brought in Tim Cook in 1998 to make Apple’s Supply Chain lean and agile.  Steve Jobs wanted something similar to what Michael Dell did with Dell Computer’s Supply Chain.  The Apple Supply Chain is now considered one of the best in the world.  Many would say the best in the world.  Tim Cook is one of the main reasons for the supply chain at Apple being so good.

Tim Cook Quotes

  • “For the most important decisions in your life, trust your intuition, and then work with everything you have, to prove it right.” ~ Tim Cook, Apple CEO
  • “We are the most focused company that I know of or have read of or have any knowledge of. We say no to good ideas every day. We say no to great ideas in order to keep the amount of things we focus on very small in number, so that we can put enormous energy behind the ones we do choose ….. It’s not just saying yes to the right products, it’s saying no to many products that are good ideas, but just not nearly as good as other ones.” ~ Tim Cook, Supply Chain Expert
  • “Apple Stores Offer the Best Buying Experience and Customer Service On The Planet.” ~ Apple CEO Tim Cook
  • “Our whole role in life is to give you something you didn’t know you wanted. And then once you get it, you can’t imagine your life without it. And you can count on Apple doing that.” ~ Tim Cook, Supply Chain Expert
