John Sculley is remembered for two things: for being the president of Pepsicola for many years, and for almost sinking Apple to the point of bankruptcy. One of his biggest mistakes that he’s been credited with was throwing out Steve Jobs with the approval of the board of directors.
It was a shady story that added to Jobs’ madness and Sculley’s mismanagement, could have caused Apple not to exist today . Many times he has made public statements, and today he has appeared in the media again, this time to acknowledge that forcing Steve Jobs out in 1985 was a mistake.
He has been featured in the Indian online newspaper, as currently the former Apple CEO is running Obi, a low cost smartphone company for India .
Sculley comments that his differences between him and Steve began with the Macintosh and the intention to divide the company into two camps:
Remember that Jobs hired Sculley to run the company in 1983, and it all seemed like a crush between the two. However, they both had different visions about Apple’s future . After Sculley left Apple almost by the back door, he ran other companies, and to this day, where he is still immersed in the technology business. Grandpa Sculley still has a lot of war to fight.
