Our Leadership Principles

Our Leadership Principles aren’t just a pretty inspirational wall hanging. These Principles work hard, just like we do. Amazonians use them, every day, whether they’re discussing ideas for new projects, deciding on the best solution for a customer’s problem, or interviewing candidates. It’s just one of the things that makes Amazon peculiar.

Customer Obsession

Leaders start with the customer and work backwards. They work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. Although leaders pay attention to competitors, they obsess over customers.



Leaders are owners. They think long term and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team. They never say “that’s not my job."


Invent and Simplify

Leaders expect and require innovation and invention from their teams and always find ways to simplify. They are externally aware, look for new ideas from everywhere, and are not limited by “not invented here." As we do new things, we accept that we may be misunderstood for long periods of time.

Are Right, A Lot

Leaders are right a lot. They have strong business judgment and good instincts.




 Hire and Develop ‘The Best’

 Leaders raise the performance bar with every hire and  promotion. They recognize exceptional talent, and willingly  move them throughout the organization. Leaders develop  leaders and take seriously their role in coaching others.


Insist on the Highest Standards

Leaders have relentlessly high standards - many people may think these standards are unreasonably high. Leaders are continually raising the bar and driving their teams to deliver high quality products, services and processes. Leaders ensure that defects do not get sent down the line and that problems are fixed so they stay fixed.

 Think Big

 Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Leaders create and  communicate a bold direction that inspires results. They think  differently and look around corners for ways to serve  customers.


Bias for Action

Speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study. We value calculated risk taking.



 We try not to spend money on things that don’t matter to  customers. Frugality breeds resourcefulness, self-sufficiency,  and invention. There are no extra points for headcount, budget  size, or fixed expense.

Vocally Self Critical

Leaders do not believe their or their team’s body odor smells of perfume. Leaders come forward with problems or information, even when doing so is awkward or embarrassing. Leaders benchmark themselves and their teams against the best.


Earn Trust of Others

Leaders are sincerely open-minded, genuinely listen, and are willing to examine their strongest convictions with humility.

Dive Deep

Leaders operate at all levels, stay connected to the details, and audit frequently. No task is beneath them.


Girl rock climbing

 Have Backbone; Disagree and Commit

 Leaders are obligated to respectfully challenge decisions when  they disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or  exhausting. Leaders have conviction and are tenacious. They do  not compromise for the sake of social cohesion. Once a decision  is determined, they commit wholly.

Deliver Results

Leaders focus on the key inputs for their business and deliver them with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, they rise to the occasion and never settle.
