Amazon’s Risky Bet

The November 13, 2006 issue of BusinessWeek had a great cover of Jeff Bezos and Amazon’s move into webservices such as Simple Storage Service and Elastic Compute Cloud. As part of the cover story, BusinessWeek had a nice inset of Jeff Bezos playbook. Some of the best practices I have covered here recently from my the Future of Web Apps coverage.

According to BusinessWeek, Bezos best practices include: Measure Everything, Keep Product Development Teams Small, Don’t Be Afraid of Weird Ideas, Open Up To Outsiders, and Watch Customers Not Competitors.
