By choosing the Home Depot case to write a paper about, seemed a good way to us to enlarge our knowledge about the (US) home improvement industry. The knowledge gained might prove to be useful in the future.

The case about Home Depot gave a lot of information, from the history till the corporate culture. Although a lot of information was in the case, we had to do a substantial amount of research on the internet. The research on the internet was mainly to look for information about Home Depot self as well as for some theory. For most of the theory used, we had several books, ranging from the strategic management book used in the course to a book about organisational behaviour.

In this study we will answer several questions with subjects ranging from strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of Home Depot till the corporate culture and corporate strategies.
