When Strategy Gets Out of the Way

A lot of what we seem to be doing in a product like [the iPhone] is actually getting design out of the way. And I think with that sort of reason — and they’re not just arbitrary shapes — it feels almost inevitable. It feels almost undesigned. It feels almost like, “Well, of course it’s that way. Why would it be any other way?”

It's a similar concept with strategy. The more it seems obvious (in retrospect) it was the way to go, the stronger the focus and discipline invested to make it happen.
