In Ed Catmull's new book, Creativity Inc., he outlines the process he and his team developed at Pixar, unarguably one of the top movie makers in the world, and brought to Disney.

Disney Animation, which almost got shut down after a decade of embarrassing box-office failures, used the Pixar process (without any of Pixar's staff!) to turn itself around and produce "Frozen", the highest-grossing animated series of all time.

The lessons learned go far beyond movie-making, though, and are an instruction manual on how to manage any development process.
