Pixar - A Model Business

How Pixar Adds a New School of Thought to Disney - New York Times (registration required)

We've made the leap from an idea-centered business to a people-centered business. Instead of developing ideas, we develop people. Instead of investing in ideas, we invest in people. We're trying to create a culture of learning, filled with lifelong learners. It's no trick for talented people to be interesting, but it's a gift to be interested. We want an organization filled with interested people. -Randy Nelson, Pixar

That's a great way to look at building a successful business. Thanks to Sheila for forwarding the article along. I hope we can eventually look back on our time here at TheLadders as time well spent with interested people, not just time spent building the job search for executives.
