While Wal-Mart's methods are under scrutiny for the seeming forceful nature, but in reality they just have the power to push suppliers around and pressure small businesses to the brink. The retailer is brutally honest and straight forward about what they need and what they can get in their business ventures. Wal-Mart creates low prices by the threat of outsourcing and pitting suppliers against each other. If a supplier wants to change the terms of their agreement with Wal-Mart, they will simply be shoved aside and replaced by someone who will do what Wal-Mart wants.

Strategy and Policy Group Project WAL-MART STORES, INC.: UNDER ATTACK (2006) The Stage II is intended to compensate for the weaknesses inherent in SWOT matrix and add additional perspectives to the analysis. In Stage II, your analysis will be geared toward responding to several questions related to the assigned case. This will require you to go beyond the rational analysis performed in Stage I, but provide you with more flexibility and freedom in formulating your answers, where you are not strictly bound by rationality, as is the case with the SWOT matrix. This is to recognize that an organization is not an entirely rational entity but a dynamic one (e.g., actions are taken based on rational as well as other considerations), that a SWOT is not likely to capture all the nuances of an organization, and that considerations beyond what the data/facts indicate (e.g., organizational politics, wisdom of the strategic manager, factors that are not apparently visible, etc.,), all of which may play an important role in the formulation of a strategy. For example, a SWOT matrix may not touch on or provide a satisfactory answer to the type of questions, such as: How would you describe Phil Knight's leadership philosophy?
