How Amazon makes better decisions

“At Amazon, the memo format allows every meeting where ideas are presented to turn into a deep debate of the idea’s relative costs and merits. This kind of criticism is even built into the memos themselves. Each memo is designed to be a full logical argument, complete with a reflexive defense of potential objections:
The point or the objective being discussed
How teams have attempted to handle this issue in the past
How the presenter’s attempt differs
Why Amazon should care (i.e., what’s in it for the company?)”
