Steve Jobs had a tight grip on nearly everything at Apple (NAS: AAPL). Say what you will about domineering control and overarching perfectionism, but his approach worked.

With his death, Apple no longer has the iconic leader to turn to as the absolute authority on just about anything. When Jobs was adamantly against something, it was promptly shot down and never spoken of again. If he needed something done, it would jump to the top of the priority list. Including the words "Steve request" in the subject of an internal email was a surefire way to get something accomplished.
