Organisational Structure of Amazon.com - February 1st, 2011

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is a US-based multinational electronic commerce company. Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, it is the largest online retailer in the United States, with nearly three times the Internet sales revenue of the runner up, Staples, Inc., as of January 2010.[3]

Jeff Bezos founded Amazon.com, Inc. in 1994 and launched it online in 1995. The company was originally named Cadabra, Inc., but the name was changed when it was discovered that people sometimes heard the name as "Cadaver". The name Amazon.com was chosen because the Amazon River is one of the largest rivers in the world, and so the name suggests large size, and also in part because it starts with "A" and therefore would show up near the beginning of alphabetical lists. Amazon.com started as an online bookstore, but soon diversified, selling DVDs, CDs, MP3 downloads, computer software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, and toys. Amazon has established separate websites in Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, and China. It also provides international shipping to certain countries for some of its products.

“Management Control”

This revised principle of the scientific management is relevant and much related to organizational structure, management, control and design. In the process of management control Taylor and the neo-Taylor groups suggests that management control is but a natural strategy in which management or employers’ responsibility is to ensure that all the processes and production operations within the company are stabilize and whatever problems that may arise are subject to the management decisions. The management should see to it that everything inside the organizational, in each divisions and departments are all in their proper order and positioning. The process of decision-making as well as formulating guidelines and rules within the organization should be the task observed by the management.

The control over the resources, production processes, and employees’ welfare are under the supervision of the management. This set-up in an organizational structure and design are patterned after the scientific management principle on management control. This revised principle suggests of the same rules applied by organizations in their own structures and design.

“Management Standards”

This principle of scientific management speaks of a scientific way of selection, orientation, and training processes of the employees. For Taylor, there must be a set of rigid standards to follow in the process of selection, orientation and training in the recruitment process. This second principle, aware of its rigidity in standard procedures provides a strict screening of applicants that will produce highly qualified employees. This management strategy posits a similar approach with the new organizational structures and designs on the level of recruitment and training process. For instance, in the Ritz-Carlton management, the selection and screening process of applicants is rigid. There are screening procedures and interviews they hold in order to satisfactorily select competent applicants and upon accepting deserving applicants, they undergo three weeks of training and orientation in order to familiarize themselves with the history, philosophy, and nature of their work. This process of recruitment is a new approach subscribed by any organizations; however, this becomes similar to the scientific management approach or principle.

Management Cooperation

In this principle, group formation, characteristics and effectiveness in an organizational structure and behavior is similar to that of the scientific management principle of cooperation. In order that a company may have good relations with its employees and all the members of the organization, cooperation is need. The collective effort of employees creates a better atmosphere and quality work within the company. This in turn produces high quality of production not only of needs but of knowledge.
