What's more important? People, or Ideas?

What's more important? People, or Ideas?

Is having right people with you a more important aspect, or having the right idea? 

According to Ed Catmull (The President and Co-Founder of Pixar Studios), having right people takes the edge. 

  • If you give a good idea to a mediocre team, they will screw it up. 
  • If you give a mediocre idea to a brilliant team, they will either fix it or throw it away and come up with something better.
  • Getting the right people and the right chemistry is more important than getting the right idea.

Hire inspired people, then give them good ideas. Never try to do it the other way around.
