Ep. 944: Bill Carr Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
I get the chance to understand how Amazon ticks? I’ll take it.
Bill Carr reveals and codifies the principles and practices that drive the success of one of the most extraordinary companies the world has ever known. With twenty-seven years of Amazon experience between Bill and his co-author, much of it in the early aughts―a period of unmatched innovation that brought products and services including Kindle, Amazon Prime, Amazon Studios, and Amazon Web Services to life―Bill offers unprecedented access to the Amazon way as it was refined, articulated, and proven to be repeatable, scalable, and adaptable.
Bill illuminates in his new book Working Backwards how Amazon’s fourteen leadership principles inform decision-making at all levels and reveal how the company’s culture has been defined by four characteristics: customer obsession, long-term thinking, eagerness to invent, and operational excellence. Carr explain the set of ground-level practices that ensure these are translated into action and flow through all aspects of the business.
Bio: Bill Carr joined Amazon in 1999 and spent more than 15 years with the company. As Vice President of Digital Media, Bill launched and managed the company’s global digital music and video businesses, including Amazon Music, Prime Video, and Amazon Studios.
