In our course reading for this week, we will focus our attention on strategies for competitive advantage. In addition, we will discuss corporate and multi-business unity strategy. In moving forward with our understanding of these concepts, discussion the following questions.
(1)How would you describe the competitive nature of the home improvement industry? Does either Home Depot or Loweâ€™s have a discernible competitive advantage? If not, does that mean that neither firm has an advantage?
(2) What is the market selection and what are the positive and negative connotations associated with it?
Responses to each of the questions will be submitted prior to each class session, and graded based on the quality, depth, integration of concepts and readings, and demonstrated critical analysis of the material.
