Hectic week. 

Some Amazon, China and Products. 

It's Raining Amazon!
The case for digital reinvention
Killing 'Em Softly
If you analyze on who is leading the innovation race - it could be either Google, Facebook, Apple, Tesla, Netflix, AirBnB and Uber. But, Amazon (according to me) has achieved escape velocity from the competition on all fronts. Perfect matchmakers, they have nailed the strategy to build better products, platforms, hardware and infrastructure. 

Prime Seller, Prime Video, Alexa, Chime, Drones, Airstrips, Go, AWS - Amazon is everywhere, powering the world. 
Here’s why Amazon is the world’s most innovative company of 2017. Making competition irrelevant in whatever it embarks on. 

Moreover, First Round always brings great content. Their piece on Amazon’s friction-killing tactics to build better products is a good read. 
Hey, can I have some Chinnovation?
Everybody keeps talking about AI and how it’s going to take away your jobs and make jobs irrelevant (pfff). From imitation and copy-cat strategy of building new stuff to leading the innovation race; Chinese startups are killing it. China’s rise in artificial intelligence is something the world shall be either fear or be jealous of.

Chingularity in near. 
Great Products, Design Principles
I am pro principle-driven product management - keeps the customer delight in alignment with the business goals - creates value that sticks - drives your growth up. So what are the design principles behind great products? Find it out here. 
Productise - Turn great tech into great product - covers every bit you need to know to convert great tech (read AI) into a product (users pay money for it). 

This is all for this week. 

Stay awesome.
