Ed Catmull on How Pixar Succeeds

Mashable was at a conference where Ed Catmull, the president for Pixar and Disney Animation, spoke on how Pixar is able to find success in innovation.

He believes in the old saying “It’s better to ask for forgiveness than to ask permission,” but his corollary is that it’s better to fix errors than it is to prevent them, something that he believes many mangers do not get. In fact, Pixar looked to Toyota’s manufacturing process for inspiration in terms of structure and bringing diverse skillsets together to create a strong company.

Many more great nuggets at Mashable.
