Working Backwards: Amazon's Approach to Innovation

Innovation seems to be the new strategic buzzword of the day - not at Amazon. Innovation is built into their culture and reinforced by their leadership principles. A growing number of companies have noticed and are looking to Amazon for help in cracking their code to success. And not just for their cloud services, but to understand how they approach innovation.

Our next AITP meeting on September 11, 2018 will host Vincent Perfetti - a member of Amazon's Web Services (AWS) Principal Advisory group. Vincent will share how Amazon's culture of customer obsession has helped make them one of the most innovative companies ever. 

He will share real world examples of how Amazon has helped it's customers transform their businesses. Most importantly, Vincent will tie this back to the ever-evolving role of a CIO in large enterprises and things to consider in leading innovation within their organizations.

Don't miss this great opportunity to learn about how Amazon innovates - sign up now.

Outcomes - learn methods and approaches to innovation used by Amazon and AWS, both internally and with its customer.
