What do you think is Amazon’s challenge right now?

amazonFocus.

Amazon is so ambitious with their tentacles reaching into so many different industries — the biggest challenge has to be focus. The mission statement has been expanded several times and now reads “Our vision is to be earth’s most customer-centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online.” That’s a lot to bite off, even for one of the largest technology companies in the world.

Another challenge is scaling the team so quickly. Hundreds of new employees a week is a lot of growth, not to mention being early in the process of planning H2.
