Businesses Online- August 19, 2004 - Jeff Bezos: "Blind-Alley" Explorer In the Business Week interview with Jeff Bezos he talks about Amazon.com's need to stay on top of their market. Although it's a little light on innovation insights, he does talk about the importance of being able to try out new concepts quickly and easily as possible - by organizing teams into "two pizza teams" (the number of people that can be fed on two pizzas - is teams of about 6) - Amazon keeps product development teams agile and flexible, driven, and able to handle many projects. The malleability of the internet is also a huge boon, as they're able to do things such as show one customer one thing, and show another customer an alternative to market test concepts quickly and easily.
