In a more constrained role as CEO given his track record, Steve Jobs may well be able to continue to make a significant contribution to Apple. Two sets of responsibilities overlap here: the individual responsibility of Jobs and the collective responsibility of Apple's Board.
The issue turns on whether Steve Jobs can recognize when his health has so limited his effectiveness that he must finally step down permanently from a leadership role. If he cannot, does his board have the strength and character to make it clear to him that he must no longer act in an executive capacity?
No exception should be made that undermines the health of the company that Steve Jobs has led so brilliantly; stockholders deserve a relatively quick answer.
