Giulia Rossi, Innovation Programs Leader (Fr, Iberia, It), AWS

Luca Dell'Orletta, Global Head of Information Technology Innovation, Nestle Group

Amazon’s approach to innovation has remained consistent since the company first launched—start with the customer and work backwards. In this session, learn about Amazon’s peculiar culture and how Amazon innovates through four distinct, yet interdependent, elements: culture, mechanisms, architecture, and organization. Dive deep on each topic and learn more about practical applications, including Leadership Principles, working backwards, two-pizza teams, the PRFAQ doc, and why it’s always Day 1 at Amazon and AWS. In the presentation we will also hear how other companies like Nestlé are innovating with AWS leveraging the Amazon mechanism and the startup ecosystem.
