The Brand Management Checklist

Increasingly, the brand is becoming the key source of differentiation that guides a customer’s purchase choice.  The brand is also the focal point around which an organization defines how it will uniquely deliver value to that customer in a profitable manner. The brand embodies the “heart and soul” of an organization.  In effect, its promise is delivered through its products, services, and consumer communication, creating the total customer relationship and experience.  If the brand is well-conceived and consistently delivered through all business processes and customer contacts, the organization will grow and prosper.

Are you a part of a brand building organization? The following checklist will help you assess your organization’s readiness to build brands.

•Is there a formal process for managing your brands?

•Is there a person or group responsible for strategic oversight of your brands?

•Does this include oversight of individual sub-brands?

•Do your senior managers own brand strategy (rather than a specific department or an ad agency)?

•Do you manage your brands as a portfolio, versus allowing (or even encouraging) autonomy in the management of individual brands and sub-brands?

•Are differentiating features reserved for the brands whose promises they best reinforce? Are you confident that there is no pressure to copy one brand’s best competitive features for the organization’s other brands and sub-brands?

•In recruiting for jobs in your organization, do you screen people for congruence between their beliefs, values and personality and your brand’s essence, promise and personality?
