About Our Strategy

Random House is a creative enterprise but it is run as a business. While the heart and soul of the company are our authors and books, the backbone is our results-oriented corporate structure. We believe that our publishing divisions have a higher degree of editorial and artistic independence than any other publishing company. At the same time, the divisions share a common corporate infrastructure that provides services such as sales, operations, and finance, and also leads investments in new technologies. In this way, Random House leverages business efficiency and know-how to support the creative work of book publishing. Our infrastructure is unparalleled among book publishers and makes our company comparable to other international leaders in consumer products.

Even in our industry’s digital transition, Random House remains unwavering in our deep commitment to physical books. We continue to invest in a variety of initiatives that strengthen our supply-chain infrastructure and enable greater efficiencies for our brick-and-mortar retail partners. We want to ensure that our authors benefit from a dual marketplace for print and digital publishing. This is why we are also investing heavily in digital-channel and content development, as we explore and experiment with new products and new ways for readers to engage with our authors’ works. The digital landscape offers abundant opportunities for direct communication with readers, and we are taking full advantage of all of them by leveraging our technology and our incomparable sales, marketing, and publicity experience and know-how to bring our books where readers are, and drive awareness across all formats and channels.
Random House benefits from relationships with other companies that are also part of our parent organization, Bertelsmann, including book printers and book component manufacturers. While we work closely together, we operate autonomously, ensuring the highest level of efficiency and lowest cost for services.

From this solid platform, Random House continues to grow—through further expansion in trade publishing, growth into new countries, and entry into emerging formats.
