Home Depot, Inc. in the New Millennium
After nearly two decades of spectacular performance, Home Depot reported a disappointing performance in the year 2000. The company began expanding its business scope as a result of saturating its growth in the core business. This case explores whether the disappointing performance is just a temporary slip or if the company is reaching the limits of sustainability of its competitive advantage.
