Good points.

Steve Jobs' style is not good for an organization that needs to learn from past mistakes.

"Had someone with a Steve Jobs management style been running the Mars program in the 1990s, it’s not clear who would have been left standing to learn from mistakes. That’s one of the consequences when you fire whoever led the team that blew it. Remaining team members won’t want to stick around to find out what happens the next time something hits the fan."
