Sample Key Takeaways: 1) Amazon's buildings in Seattle's developing South Lake Union neighborhood, which the company moved into in 2010, were unremarkable physically. There was no conspicuous signage revealing the existence of a renowned online firm with almost $35 billion in yearly sales, at the request of its CEO, Jeff Bezos. 2) Bezos had advised colleagues that nothing beneficial could come from that type of apparent self-aggrandizement. Anyone who had business with the company would already know where it was located.

Book The Everything War

Download or read book The Everything War written by Dana Mattioli and published by Random House. This book was released on 2024-04-25 with total page 269 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: ‘Riveting and explosive. This is the business story of our time.’ Christopher Leonard, New York Times Bestselling Author of Kochland and The Lords of Easy Money --- From veteran Amazon reporter for The Wall Street Journal, The Everything War is the first untold, devastating exposé of Amazon's endless strategic greed, its pursuit of total domination, by any means necessary, and the growing efforts to stop it. For over twenty years, Amazon was the quintessential American success story, whilst its “customer obsession” approach made it indelibly attractive to consumers across the globe. But the company was not benevolent; it operated in ways that ensured it stayed on top, coming to dominate over a dozen industries beyond retail, growing voraciously by abusing data, exploiting partners, copying competitors, and avoiding taxes—leveraging its power to extract whatever it could, at any cost and without much scrutiny. Until now. With unparalleled access, and having interviewed hundreds of people – from Amazon executives to competitors to small businesses who rely on its marketplace to survive – Dana Mattioli exposes how Amazon was driven by a competitive edge to dominate every industry it entered, bulldozed all who stood in its way, reshaped the retail landscape, transformed how Wall Street evaluates companies, and altered the very nature of the global economy. In 2023, the Federal Trade Commission filed a monopoly lawsuit against Amazon in what may become one of the largest antitrust cases in the 21st century. As Amazon’s supremacy is finally challenged, The Everything War is the definitive, inside story of how it grew into one of the most powerful and feared companies in the world – and why this is the most consequential business story of our times.

Book Artificial Intelligence and the Apocalyptic Imagination

Download or read book Artificial Intelligence and the Apocalyptic Imagination written by Michael J. Paulus and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2023-05-15 with total page 163 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The increasing role and power of artificial intelligence in our lives and world requires us to imagine and shape a desirable future with this technology. Since visions of AI often draw from Christian apocalyptic narratives, current discussions about technological hopes and fears present an opportunity for a deeper engagement with Christian eschatological resources. This book argues that the Christian apocalyptic imagination can transform how we think about and use AI, helping us discover ways artificial agency may participate in new creation.

Book Underground Empire

Download or read book Underground Empire written by Henry Farrell and published by Random House. This book was released on 2023-09-07 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'Captivating... The stuff of thrillers' - the Financial Times An explosive new vision of geopolitics from two trail-blazing political scientists Deep beneath our feet, vast and sprawling, lies one of the most sophisticated empires the world has ever known. At first glance, it might not look like much - it is made up of fibre optic cables and obscure payment systems. But according to prominent political scientists Henry Farrell and Abraham Newman, the United States has turned the most vital pathways of the world economy into tools of domination over foreign businesses and countries, whether they are rivals or allies, allowing it to maintain global supremacy. Drawing on original reporting and ground-breaking research, Farrell and Newman explain how this underground empire has allowed the United States to eavesdrop on other countries and isolate its enemies. Now, efforts by countries such as China and Russia to untether themselves from this coercive US-led system are turning the global economy into a battle zone. Today's headlines about trade wars, sanctions, and controls on technology exports are merely tremors hinting at far greater seismic shifts beneath the surface, as we sleepwalk into a dangerous new struggle for empire. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how power is wielded today, Underground Empire weaves together tales of economic conflict, shadowy surveillance and covert infrastructure projects to explain how the world order has been brought to the brink of chaos - and how we might find a way back from the edge.

  • Release : 2022-02-22
  • ISBN : 0262543303
  • Pages : 327 pages

Download or read book Buy Now written by Emily West and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 2022-02-22 with total page 327 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How Amazon combined branding and relationship marketing with massive distribution infrastructure to become the ultimate service brand in the digital economy. Amazon is ubiquitous in our daily lives—we stream movies and television on Amazon Prime Video, converse with Alexa, receive messages on our smartphone about the progress of our latest orders. In Buy Now, Emily West examines Amazon’s consumer-facing services to investigate how Amazon as a brand grew so quickly and inserted itself into so many aspects of our lives even as it faded into the background, becoming a sort of infrastructure that can be taken for granted. Amazon promotes the comfort and care of its customers (but not its workers) to become the ultimate service brand in the digital economy. West shows how Amazon has cultivated personalized, intimate relationships with consumers that normalize its outsized influence on our selves and our communities. She describes the brand’s focus on speedy and seamless ecommerce delivery, represented in the materiality of the branded brown box; the positioning of its book retailing, media streaming, and smart speakers as services rather than sales; and the brand’s image control strategies. West considers why pushback against Amazon’s ubiquity and market power has come mainly from among Amazon’s workers rather than its customers or competitors, arguing that Amazon’s brand logic fragments consumers as a political bloc. West’s innovative account, the first to examine Amazon from a critical media studies perspective, offers a cautionary cultural study of bigness in today’s economy.

Book Frameworks and Cases on Evolutional Supply Chain

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Although most supply chains have changed dramatically over the years, the dynamic aspects of supply chains, such as changes in the suppliers, factory and storage locations, production processes, and distribution structures, are rarely studied and considered. Further study on the evolution of supply chains is crucial in order to ensure they are working as efficiently as possible. Frameworks and Cases on Evolutional Supply Chain considers the dynamic aspects of the supply chain and provides frameworks of the evolutional supply chain through symbolic case studies. Covering a range of topics such as industrial clusters, food loss, and the global supply chain, this reference work is ideal for industry professionals, researchers, practitioners, scholars, academicians, policymakers, business owners, government officials, instructors, and students.

Book Public Space Unbound

Download or read book Public Space Unbound written by Sabine Knierbein and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-03-15 with total page 312 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Through an exploration of emancipation in recent processes of capitalist urbanization, this book argues the political is enacted through the everyday practices of publics producing space. This suggests democracy is a spatial practice rather than an abstract professional field organized by institutions, politicians and movements. Public Space Unbound brings together a cross-disciplinary group of scholars to examine spaces, conditions and circumstances in which emancipatory practices impact the everyday life of citizens. We ask: How do emancipatory practices relate with public space under ‘post-political conditions’? In a time when democracy, solidarity and utopias are in crisis, we argue that productive emancipatory claims already exist in the lived space of everyday life rather than in the expectation of urban revolution and future progress.

  • Author : Paul Brooker
  • Publisher : Oxford University Press
  • Release : 2023-11-24
  • ISBN : 0198894643
  • Pages : 513 pages

Download or read book Rational Leadership written by Paul Brooker and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2023-11-24 with total page 513 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Rational leadership inspires confidence by capably using appropriate rational means, as described in the first edition of Rational Leadership. Now a second, updated edition has added eight new chapters and has looked at redevelopment as well as development. The book highlights these two important versions of rational leadership, where a rational leader is either developing or redeveloping a business corporation. Part One presents eight cases of rational leaders who have developed iconic corporations. These best-practice leaders include Sam Walton of Walmart, Meg Whitman of eBay, and Jeff Bezos of Amazon. In all eight cases, the leaders used appropriate adaptive, calculative, and deliberative methods to develop their corporations. In Part Two the authors shift the focus from development to redevelopment. Part Two presents five classic cases of rational leaders redeveloping - remedially renewing - problematic corporations. The leaders include Lou Gerstner of IBM and Steve Jobs of Apple. In all five cases the leaders used appropriate organizational tools, which transformed, reoriented, or hybridized the corporation. Both Part Two and Part One also present supplementary cases of other rational leaders developing or redeveloping a corporation. These leaders include Sheryl Sandberg, Marcel Dassault, Giorgio Armani, Anita Roddick, Satya Nadella, Carly Fiorina, Marissa Mayer, and Jack Welch. In total the authors present more than twenty supplementary or main cases of rational leadership. Most of these case studies are based on a leader's memoir and leader's-eye view, validated by additional biographical and historical sources.

Book excerpt: From the bestselling author of Talk Like TED, renowned communications coach Carmine Gallo reveals the leadership secrets of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos – and gives you the tools to master them yourself. Jeff Bezos built Amazon. A dreamer who turned a bold idea into the world’s most influential company, a brand that likely touches your life every day.

He created a scalable model that grew from a small team in a Seattle garage to one of the world’s largest employers. In The Bezos Blueprint, Carmine Gallo reveals the communication strategies that Jeff Bezos pioneered to fuel Amazon’s astonishing growth. As one of the most innovative and visionary entrepreneurs of our time, Bezos reimagined the way leaders write, speak and motivate teams and customers.

Now, these tools are available to you. ‘Carmine Gallo examines more than two decades of Bezos letters to reveal the writing and communication strategies that should be taught to everyone with a story to tell’ – Marc Randolph, co-founder and first CEO of Netflix
