    Assessment of the Situation "Successful organizations combine technology change and business model change to create innovation. In addition, to successfully integrating a robust model of innovation into the business mentality, the CEO and the leadership team must balance both the business and technology elements of innovation." (Schilling, 2004). Apple Inc. remains on the cutting edge of technology. Most organizations fashioned the way they enter the competitive marketplace based on Apple's technological framework. Apple, at one time was the leader in providing products for consumers that many consumers today cannot live without. The company's ability to incorporate strong brand messaging states that the organization is in a class all on its own. In the midst of Apple's overwhelming ability to take risks, their mission of conjoining necessity with convenience does render potential consequences if the organization fails to apply the appropriate mitigation techniques before problems occur. Over the years Apple has actively approached the marketplace with iPhones, iPads, etc., each product is apparently more advanced than previous versions of the aforementioned products. " Few people are aware - and few market analysts too - that for the first 3 years the iPod was an absolute flop. The iPod was launched in october 2001, and between 2001 and 2004 iPod sales were between 100-200 thousand units per quarter, very far from today's 10-20 million units per quarter, and the iPod sales were not even covering the product research & development costs. Then, in June-Aug 2004 something happened, and iPod sales began to grow strongly, quarter after quarter. Today, we all know where the iPod stands, and what a remarkable success it is." (Vertygo Team, 2010). Unfortunately, when Apple began launching the iPhone and iPads there were inconvenient system glitches that prevented the products from functioning properly.
