The Fortune Brands Advantage
Guided by our core values of being aligned, agile and accountable, and driven by our purpose of fulfilling the dreams of home, we have delivered stakeholder value creation every year since our beginning. We are a resilient growth company, fueled by the Fortune Brands Advantage.
The Fortune Brands Advantage is our unifying operating model across all of our businesses. It fuels our exceptional, long term performance. By investing behind a common set of capabilities across the enterprise, we drive both incremental growth and margin expansion to ensure we continually outperform any market condition.
The Fortune Brands Advantage is focused on three areas: category management, global supply chain excellence and complexity reduction.
- Category management – as a leader across categories, we partner with our channel partners to drive optimal performance and best serve our consumers through actionable category insights.
- Global supply chain excellence – leveraging our robust, global supply chain to strategically drive scale efficiencies with cutting edge capabilities.
- Complexity reduction – simplifying workstreams to be even more efficient.
The Fortune Brands Advantage is dynamic, and will evolve over time as we learn new skills and embed others.
We have the scale and strong cash flow to invest in programs that support the Fortune Brands Advantage across our businesses. Additionally, we are growing our competencies in these areas every day, and accumulating a reservoir of experiences, insights, standard metrics, training resources and central support to share with key stakeholders across the organization. This means that, as we strengthen our competencies, each business will be able to take advantage of every opportunity available for revenue growth and margin improvement.
Our strengths in these areas reliably unlock sustainable value and contribute to continued outperformance, no matter the market environment.
We are excited for how the Fortune Brands Advantage will enable us to continue to drive growth in a strong housing market for years to come. To learn more, read our latest investor presentation.
