Innovation at Scale. How does Amazon approach innovation

Innovation and agility when you're an early stage startup is part of your competitive advantage, but how do you maintain that edge and continue to have the capacity for disruption as you scale and grow? Amazon is now over 20 years old, has a market cap of over US$370B, but prides itself on innovation still being core to its cultural DNA. This culture of building, experimenting and thinking big has been responsible for innovations like Kindle e-readers, the Alexa voice service, and the world leading cloud computing platform Amazon Web Services.
Come and hear about how we think about innovating at global scale, and the lessons we've learned along the way that you can apply in your business.
