I came across an interesting post which covers a few interesting aspects of quality, teams, ideas and execution in software development.

Some interesting quotes:

“This is all your app is: a collection of tiny details.”

“If you give a good idea to a mediocre group, they’ll screw it up. If you give a mediocre idea to a good group, they’ll fix it. Or they’ll throw it away and come up with something else.

The post also contains a link to a youtube video where Ed Catmull from Pixar explains how they learned, through trial and error, to build teams that can execute.
