I just read this article by Ed Catmull on the business principles that have driven Pixar to their great success. Link. The first reason you should be interested is that Mr. Catmull is one of the pioneers of computer graphics. The second is Pixar, the company he created and still runs, is one of the most consistently successful companies around that creates artistic products. The type of work Pixar does is very close to the work we do in games and there is plenty to learn from his experiences.
