Professional Essays Writer Apple Inc. in 2015

David B. Yoffie, Eric Baldwin

Strategy & Execution

At the end of 2014, Apple Inc. recorded the most profitable quarter of any firm in history, and its market capitalization soon topped $700 billion. ‘Apple Inc in 2015’ explores the history of Apple, its successes under Jobs, its continued growth under Tim Cook, and the challenges facing the company in 2015.
