  • Analysis Of Home Depot Culture

    Bob Nardelli joined the Home Depot team in 2000, when it was already successful. However, he also joined during a time when the company had grown so rapidly so quickly that changes needed to be made. While he created his own change model, had he known about Kotter and Cohen’s 8-step change model, he may have met fewer challenges (Kotter & Cohen, 2002). When Nardelli first arrived at Home Depot, he was deemed an outsider of a close-knit organization. Nonetheless, the board had made the decision that he was the best person for the task at hand. Being a seasoned manager, Nardelli, who had the expertise to see continued growth, provided the base for the changes Home Depot needed (Charan, 2006). The first step that Nardelli quickly recognized was the need to deal with any immediate problem that neither employees nor investors had noticed. He also needed to tackle the lack of experienced store and district managers, along with the challenge that Lowe’s presented (Charan, 2006). In order to address the necessary changes, Nardelli laid out a three-part strategy. The first part was to enhance the core by improving the profitability of both current and future stores within the existing markets (Charan, 2006). The next part was the extend the business by beginning to offer related services such as; tool rental and home installation of products being offered by Home Depot. The final part was to expand the present market, both geographically and by targeting new customers, such as big…
