John Rossman is a former Amazon executive, who launched and scaled the Marketplace business, which now accounts for more than 50 percent of all units sold at Amazon.com. In his current role, he is often asked “How did Amazon do this?” or “Why did Amazon do it this way?” As such he decided to write, Think Like Amazon: 50 ½ Ideas to Become a Digital Leader. John and Kevin discuss the book and he draws upon his experience at Amazon to show you how you can think differently about business and leadership to move your organization forward. John expands on a few ideas in the book, including the fact that the question is just as, if not more important, than the solution.
In this episode John 1. Defines a digital leader. 2. Shares ideas about becoming a digital leader.
Ask yourself: Is it a one door or two door decision?
