    The Case of Harley-Davidson - A Strategic Audit

    I. Current Situation

    A. Current (2002) Performance and Brief Case Abstract
    Harley-Davidson, Inc., hereinafter referred to as HD, celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2003. As impressive as this is in and of itself, even more impressive is the continued long and mostly profitable product life cycle that the company has enjoyed since 1903. There were some close calls regarding the financial viability of the company along the way related to changes in ownership with poor market vision; poor strategic plans, and some poor supply chain operational inefficiencies. Since 1997, HD has embarked upon a strategic roadmap to recovery that will be the focus of the strategic audit in this report.
