Pixar is a truly unique company. Their movies are the most creative and fascinating movies coming out of Hollywood. How do they manage to do this time and again. Today’s needull is an interview of Lawrence Levy, former Pixar CFO, where he talks about his experience with Pixar and with Steve Jobs.
Levy: One of the things that I really honed and leaned at Pixar is that great work of any kind — whether it’s great creative work or great work in any industry or endeavor — requires this collaboration among competing forces. It’s the power to bring together all these disparate forces in a culture that allows for the right kind of collaboration. Great work, whether it’s films or otherwise, emerges from the right kind of culture.
