Over the past year or so Home Depot has been quietly laying off some of their most successful IT Leaders. This group includes multiple executive levels (SVP, VP, Senior Director, Director, and Sr. Manager). While the total number of layoffs is relatively small (<50 so far) these are not your average leaders. The fact that these former associates are technical domain experts, proven thought leaders, strategic thinkers, innovators, and well respected managers with many years of accolades for outstanding performance is interesting to say the least. There has been no clear reason provided for releasing these associates.
