Improvement Recommendation I think Jeff Bezos should be more flexible and pay more attention to his employees, I know he has great passion for his ideas, I think Amazon would be stronger financially if he allows the vision and ideas of his employee to be shared as well. Furthermore, Bezos’s Kindle Fire innovation will need more improvement to be able to compete with other tablets in the market, even though Jeff Bezo’s passion is just a tablet that is not as sophisticated like the IPAD and the Windows tablet, I think suggestions from other employees or experts in technology could bring in new ideas that would improve their existing product like the Kindle fire, accepting other ideas would lead to increase in profits, and he could be compared to leaders like Steve Jobs.
