This essay sheds light on Amazon’s organizational environment, stakeholders, business culture, organizational structure, strategies, and value providers. The ample factors of Amazon's organizational environment play a paramount role in Amazon’s profound success and unprecedented profitability as a multibillion dollar e-commerce company.
"Amazon's key stakeholders are Amazon's investors, employees, directors, government (and its agencies), owners (shareholders), customers, associates, third party sellers, and the community from which the business draws its resources" ("stakeholder,"). Amazon benefits their stakeholders in a myriad of different ways, such as by having created a slew of stable jobs for Amazon's employees, third party sellers, associates, and suppliers. Also, Amazon benefits communities by giving consumers the opportunity to conveniently purchase from millions of items from the comfort of their own homes twenty-four-seven for lower prices than competitors products.
"For the most part, the value of Amazon's stock keeps consistently increasing” ("Amazon.com, inc. (nasdaq:amzn)." 2012).
"Amazon intends to retain all future earnings to finance future growth and, therefore, does not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future" ("Faqs,"). As a low cost leader, Amazon holds a significant amount of the market share throughout an exorbitant amount of markets, is set up to run cost-effectively, and heavily invests in research and development efforts to bolster long term financial growth. Amazon's business culture can be defined as a role culture.
"A role culture is a culture with a rule of law with clear responsibility and reward system that provides stability, justice, and efficiency” ("Business culture,"). "Amazon's vision is to be the Earth's most customer-oriented company. This business model of Amazon.com is based on retaining customers for a considerable number of years - 12 years by some analysts' forecasts" (Weinstein, 2012).
