Are you kidding me. TGT still has ties with Amazon Web Services that need to be cut. How many people at Target have been laid off or minimized by Amazon's dominance and we still have a relationship that needs to be severed. God help us, we have incompetence at top levels of Target.

Another reason, the clowns in digital have to go. ITs incredible that the team that outsourced the digital to Amazon and is still out there. Clean these a!#$wipes out...Start fresh.
How to make decisions at Target: Get everyone in a room who is not an expert at the subject being discussed. Confirmation bias the sh-- out of it, and achieve 'consensus.' Then fire any experts who dare question the machine.
When I was in grad school The then Vice Chairman of Target gave a speech about "Bricks and Clicks." He explained how Amazon was this small little tech company was going to take Target's Catalog business online to create an "Online Catalog" of certain Target product. In essence he thought people would look online for items and then come in to the store to buy them. Target Handed Amazon their business model for retail (outside of books) they collected a fee on each transaction online. No joke, I have the handouts somewhere for the presentation.
