Jobs Pushed Out Of Apple
Apple hired former PepsiCo executive John Sculley in 1983 to serve as the company's CEO. Jobs and Sculley frequently clashed with their competing visions for the company's future and that led to a showdown in 1985 before Apple's board of directors. Jobs lost out in the power struggle and the board stripped him of his management duties.
Later in the year Jobs left Apple entirely and started NeXT Inc. to design a line of workstations for businesses and the education market.
