Meghan Sullivan, a reporter for Yahoo Finance, says that eight quotes from former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who passed away in 2011, can yet provide some insightful lessons for e-learning professionals. One of the Jobs quotes that she uses to demonstrate her point:
“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”
Writes Sullivan: “Aren’t you always pleasantly surprised when a product or service does exactly what it claims to do, as well as it claims to do it? It’s so rare it’s almost shocking when it happens.
The Apple brand has never been one of inflated claims. Instructional designers and e-learning developers hold the professional development of others in their hands. Quality is of the utmost importance and shouldn’t be limited to customer-facing aspects of an organization.”
