Levinson talks Jobs, product launch cycle at Stanford
Apple's board of directors is informed about new products anywhere between six to 18 months before they're announced to the public, according to current board chairman Arthur Levinson. The comments emerged at a Tuesday speech by Levinson at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. The former Genentech CEO added that while the Apple board doesn't usually have much influence on product design, the input of board members is sometimes taken into account, if enough lead time is available.
