This is an informative and thought-provoking video in which Randy Nelson, dean of Pixar University, talks about collaboration in the workplace.

Included in his message, however, are some very interesting insights into how Pixar chooses the people it ultimately hires. What struck me most: when your company is trying to innovate, or do something that hasn’t been done before, resumes are useless for finding the right people.

Whether you’re someone just starting out, or someone in the job market — or simply a leader concerned about your organization’s culture of learning, collaboration and selection, there are a lot of great lessons in this 10-minute clip.

And, of course, it’s all the more credible given Pixar’s track record.
