Our Strategic Framework: The Three-Legged Stool
We use this three-legged stool as our strategic framework. Enormous changes have impacted retail and Home Depot over the last several years: changes in our customers' expectations, changes in our competitive framework, changes in our business model. Our three-legged stool sets out an enduring strategic construct.
Borrowing from Jim Collins, we try to address the three core questions that every business should answer:
- What are we passionate about? Customer service.
- What do we want to be best in the world? Product authority.
- And what drives our economic engine? Disciplined capital allocation, productivity and efficiency.
We tie these together through interconnected retail with the objective of strengthening our performance in each element of the framework.
