“Working Backwards” process is the heart of Amazon’s innovation. It takes cues from Amazon’s leadership principles and guides teams through product definition and development. As a fundamental part of Amazon’s culture, this process helped create products our customers love and use today. In this session, we will go through the various stages of “Working backwards”, the mechanisms we have in place and how they can be adopted by companies of all sizes.
