That’s Quotable [Ed Catmull]

“The notion that you’re trying to control the process and prevent error screws things up. We all know the saying it’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission. And everyone knows that, but I Think there is a corollary: if everyone is trying to prevent error, it screws things up. It’s better to fix problems than to prevent them. And the natural tendency for managers is to try and prevent error and over plan things.”

Ed Catmull, President of Pixar, as quoted in an interview with the Economist (April 2010)
