Book News Annotation:
Davis (managing partner of Prophet in Chicago; adjunct instructor at Northwestern U.) and Dunn (president and CEO of Prophet) show companies how to "jump-start the brand-building process" by determining the best ways to deliver their brand across all interactions with customers and other stakeholders, and through every employee in the company.

Case studies of a number of established, successful companies are included. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
"Every time an employee gets to touch a customer or a customer gets to touch the brand, that company gets the opportunity to either reinforce its brand promise or totally denigrate it."
In Building the Brand-Driven Business, authors Scott M. Davis and Michael Dunn— two of the nation's foremost experts on brands— map out a strategy that can help an entire organization manage and live (not just think about) its brand. They show how to develop brand-building programs that are the most cost efficient, effective, and credible. And just as vital, they reveal how to create a brand-driven culture within an organization so that building the brand becomes everyone's job.
Building the Brand-Driven Business shows how to recognize all of the touchpoints that affect the brand and how to take control of those touchpoints, whether at pre-purchase, during the purchase, or post-purchase.
Filled with illustrative examples and case studies from many of the world's leading brands companies, such as Eastman Kodak, Bell South, General Electric, Xerox, and VISA, Building the Brand-Driven Business clearly demonstrates how to bring a brand to life and increase the bottom line.
Building the Brand-Driven Business helps companies recognize, appreciate and ultimately operationalize the mantra of "every time an employee gets to touch a customer or a customer gets to touch the brand, that company gets the opportunity to either reinforce their brand promise or totally denigrate it." This book helps the entire organization manage and live (not just think about) the brand. Written by two experts on the topic, the lead author wrote the best-selling book Brand Asset Management (0-7879-5077-7) that is available in paperback (0-7879-6394-1).
