"In 1986, Ed Catmull co-founded Pixar, a modest start-up with an immodest goal: to make the first-ever computer animated movie. Nine years later, Pixar released Toy Story, which went on to revolutionize the industry, gross $360 million, and establish Pixar as one of the most successful, innovative, and emulated companies on earth. This book details how Catmull built an enduring creative culture -- one that doesn't just pay lip service to the importance of things like honesty, communication, and originality, but committed to them, no matter how difficult that often proved to be. As he discovered, pursuing excellence isn't a one-off assignment. It's an ongoing, day-in, day-out, full-time job. And one he was born to do"--… (plus d'informations)

This book gives tells a lot about the fuzzier side of creative management and how to cooperate with people in a really effective way. Catmull distills useful concepts about feedback and openness while leaving room for individual development of style and culture. Worth reading if your interested in creative leadership. ( )

This is a great book on management in general, but I more enjoyed it for the stories told of Steve Jobs. It's clear that very few men knew Jobs like Ed Catmull did. He knew the dark side that most tell, but he also saw a man who would die for the people and companies he built. The audiobook is excellently done. ( )

Very interesting covering the history of Pixar and a lot of info on Steve Jobs too. While it is a management book I think the story telling of the author makes it an interesting read despite that. ( )

One part memoir, two parts business management guide, Creativity, Inc. is Ed Catmull's love letter to the computer animation and animated movie industries. Catmull is best known as one of the co-founders of Pixar Studios and is currently the president of both Pixar and Disney Animation. What is less known about Catmull is how many important contributions to the animation technology used today he made as a computer science engineer. Catmull paved the way for computer graphics by creating a lot of the technologies that didn't exist as he pursued his dream to create the first computer-animated movie. After years of problem solving in a technical space, Catmull found himself the head of a thriving company and devoted himself to solving the problem of fostering an environment where creativity can thrive in a modern workplace. This book is Catmull's way of sharing the lessons he learned along the way.

I found this book inspiring in many ways. My bachelors degree is in Computer Animation so a lot of what Catmull had to say about both the technology and industry of creating animated stories spoke to me. For the first time in many years I began to miss the fact that I haven't touched animation in I don't know how long and that I currently work for a less creative company. It also gave me some insights that I can use in my daily job to help foster an environment that promotes innovation and a sense of shared responsibility. Many of Catmull's ideas should work for any in any company whether it's in a traditionally creative industry or not. I highlighted many passages of this book to refer to when I'm in need of something to help offset the day to day at work. For example:

"In an unhealthy culture, each group believes that if their objectives trump the goals of the other groups, the company will be better off. In a healthy culture, all constituencies recognize the importance of balancing competing desires—they want to be heard, but they don’t have to win."

"Rather than trying to prevent all errors, we should assume, as is almost always the case, that our people’s intentions are good and that they want to solve problems. Give them responsibility, let the mistakes happen, and let people fix them. If there is fear, there is a reason—our job is to find the reason and to remedy it. Management’s job is not to prevent risk but to build the ability to recover."


I listened to the audio book narrated by Peter Altschuler. He has an exaggerated, dramatic style of narration. I found that speeding up the narration speed helped smooth things out and made for a better listening experience. ( )
