The first I encoutered was my football coach during 2 years, I was 18 years old, and we were in the first regional league. Our team has always been average. The coach was new in the club, so we didn’t knew him and he didn’t knew us, however he has a long experience in other clubs. We’ve quickly understood that he was very directive.

Most of the others teamplayers tryed to convinced him to make changes but he didn’t want even some parents of the players who were put by side had tryed to convinced him but he still didn’t move. Before the first match, the coach explained to the team that if we were here it was because we worth it, not because of the tradition or the friendship. And he set hard goals for the year. Even if we were sceptical at the beginning, we needed to admit that he wanted us to be better and he was working a lot for that.

Customer relationship management is mainly about building relationships with a company’s targeted profitable customers and maintaining that relationship through delivering customer value, as in how a consumer perceives a certain product and values it enough to buy it rather than buying the competitor’s product, and delivering customer satisfaction where the product meets the exact expectations the consumer had actually expected from the product or more, but not less.
Markides (2006) explains that disruptive business models are strategies implemented in a company which enables it to outshine the competitors in an individual market. The disruptive model focuses on distorting the existing market and making the customers prefer the new business as opposed to the others (Magretta, 2012).

Amazon’s culture is based on employees’ competiveness, hard work and innovation. This corporate culture however brings a really stressful environment among the organization. For the past years, the company lessened the impact of a negative culture whereas the financial reports as well as the innovation were reported as the most important things.

One of the main reason of that is that would be that (they? Who?) are not just looking at the financial success, but also at the social responsibility criteria.
