Risk Taking: Individual or A Team's Effort?
Not being surprised by failure when it happens, the people at Pixar acknowledge it up front. They greet it right at the door. By accepting that mistakes are just part of the deal, they can design their processes to be iterative, meaning they can weed out the mistakes they find with the next project and not repeat them again.
At Pixar mistakes are never made by individuals, only by teams. When failure happens, the entire team is responsible.
Failure-sharing is exactly that. When everyone feels safe to take risks do you have an environment where everyone can have the courage to be creative.
