Why Great Brands Lose Their Way

In the CEO Afterlife

Never in the history of marketing has there been so much talk about branding. The conversation in the world of branding is well beyond product and service brand discussion by marketers and ad agencies. I am not suggesting restructuring the entire brand management system. This top management ethic is essential to brand resilience. With the exception of niche, specialty, and some consumer technology markets, I see less and less of this in big business.

In the CEO Afterlife

One of the best sources of understanding is experience, such as in-market know-how, familiarity with competitors and customers, or expertise in leading during turbulent times.
