    The authors of Innovate the Pixar way promise to paraphrasing here analyze and reveal the business secrets of the bottled lighting in a bottle that is Pixar Animation Studios The book they created is ironically a pale imitation of every other business book on the market Filled with Business 101 platitudes on every page the authors would have been successful if they had taken their own advice of innovate don't imitateThere are some fantastic business books on the market This is not one of them

    Full of fun stories practical advice and usable leadership lessons

    Whimsical analysis of Pixar’s “fun is work” corporate philosophy Despite a blue sky tone this book offers a fascinating window into the singular culture of Pixar the world’s foremost animation studio Management consultants Bill Capodagli and Lynn Jackson balance their accounts of technological advances cutthroat corporate politics and astonishing profits with descriptions of Pixar’s arcane approach to strategy and human resources The tale of how Pixar’s leaders exercise their determination to run the shop their own way – while standing up to interference from Disney their corporate parent – injects narrative drama into this straightforward presentation of Pixar’s in house philosophy Its leaders’ willingness to accept failure and their faith in their own judgment about products and people prove inspiring The lessons offered at the end of each chapter err toward the simplistic and don’t usually demonstrate how conventional businesses might apply Pixar’s methods Instead the authors mostly leave extrapolation of Pixar’s business teachings to the reader A lengthy index citing other companies that thrive under a “fun” matrix helps make up for that shortcoming getAbstract finds that those examples plus revealing uotes from Pixar executives will enable readers to emulate Pixar’s strategy as they enjoy this inside the theatre corporate profile

    Over the past year Jamestown Community College has been tightening their belt as they adjust to a declining enrollment Smartly they have also been pursuing a culture of innovation in an effort to efficiently use the dollars they have as well as create an environment that is attractive to students and businesses alike I am a fan of continual process improvement which I blame on my career in the Air Force Oh by the way Happy 69th birthday United State Air ForceWhen I look for books to read I look for companies to benchmark in terms of processes and culture I am a huge fan of Google and how they operate but I am also a fan of Pixar based on what and how they do things When I saw Innovate the Pixar Way Business Lessons from the World's Most Creative Corporate Playground in a used bookstore I knew I wanted to learn from them I was not disappointed As a bonus I have a signed copy; a benefit of shopping at a used bookstore Read

    I liked this book because it encouraged me to be creative at work and to not take myself so seriously The authors had some fun ways to make the office culture exciting However the writing felt really biased as if Pixar was an amazing company without any shortcomings I think they should have tried to write from a balanced perspective but given that it is a business book and not strictly nonfiction it is passable It is a fast read but don't expect the writing to be very polished This is a good read for people who work in medium to large creative or technology companies

    I actually read this with a backdrop of my breakupdepressed playlist so it's a weird mix Mostly this just makes me feel like I'm missing out on such great company culture Where do you even find places that breed such creativity? To be in a place that is dense with innovation and ideas 'alienus non diutius'A little simplistic makes you think like where is the chaos and bad stuff that happens with all these 'free rein' but I guess nobody wants to publish that

  7. says:

    Good reminders about how to create environments where good ideas can come about Maybe the single biggest personal takeaway is that it's easier to innovate when you're having fun Also a good failure one from which you learn a useful lesson is better than a mediocre success one from which you don't learn a useful lessonSince none of us work in isolation the people with whom we surround ourselves really matter Get the team right and the ideas will follow

  8. says:

    A short and simple book on the PIxar Way of doing things Lots of interesting observations and lessons that can be used in managing a company Wished there were specific details related to the animations movies themselves or visuals that show the work place or the work environment Some good lessons to take away

  9. says:

    Very simplistic Management is often described as bad and clueless because well they're management so they must be bad Works for villains in Pixar movies but I like a little intelligence in my business booksLack of actionable advice clinched it

  10. says:

    Very good A fascinating look at creativity and an innovative company that doesn't follow the regular business or Hollywood mold Lots of good ideas of creating a creative work environment where people can actually have fun and made something of high uality
