In this long-awaited book from the world's premier brand expert and author of the seminal work Building Strong Brands, David Aaker shows managers how to construct a brand portfolio strategy that will support a company's business strategy and create relevance, differentiation, energy, leverage, and clarity. Building on case studies of world-class brands such as Dell, Disney, Microsoft, Sony, Dove, Intel, CitiGroup, and PowerBar, Aaker demonstrates how powerful, cohesive brand strategies have enabled managers to revitalize brands, support business growth, and create discipline in confused, bloated portfolios of master brands, subbrands, endorser brands, co-brands, and brand extensions. Aaker offers readers step-by-step advice on what to do when confronting scenarios such as the following: • Brands are underleveraged • The business strategy is at risk because of inadequate brand platforms • The business faces a relevance threat caused by emerging subcategories • The firm's brands are tired and bland • Strategy is paralyzed by a lack of priority among the brands • Brands are cluttered and confusing to both customers and employees • The firm needs to move into the super-premium or value arenas to create margin or sales volume • Margin pressures require points of differentiation Renowned brand guru Aaker demonstrates that assuring that each brand in the portfolio has a clear role and actively reinforces and supports the other portfolio brands will profoundly affect the firm's profitability. Brand Portfolio Strategy is required reading not only for brand managers but for all managers with bottom-line responsibility to their shareholders.

Diederich Bakker develops a comprehensive planning process that can guide brand manufacturers in assessing the internal and external environment. The step-by-step planning process includes strategies to thoroughly audit brand portfolios and to review an organisation’s brand management capabilities. The planning process aides brand manufacturers in assessing product categories and in determining retailers for their suitability as cooperation partners. The proposed Vertical Brand Portfolio Management is based on the principles of brand portfolio strategy assigning clear roles for all brands including private labels. Instead of fighting the retailer products brand manufacturers are encouraged to cooperate with retail partners by offering vertically integrated brand portfolios. Based on numerous international case studies, the author offers brand manufacturers and retailers practical tools to consider collaborations in the production and management of private labels.

Launching brand extensions is seriously considered by companies as a profitable growth strategy. The basis of this study is the impact of brand portfolio strategy and differentiation on consumer evaluation of incongruent extensions, or extensions perceived to have low fit with the parent brand. The main issue addressed in this thesis is: how choice of extension brand portfolio strategy and differentiation strategy from its parent brand can compensate for the problems caused by lower perceived parent-extension fit? The study was designed as a 2x2x2 experiment to test the interaction between three independent variables (perceived fit, brand portfolio strategy and differentiation) and their impact on one dependent variable (brand extension attitude). The results support the initial proposition that wisely using brand portfolio strategy and differentiation strategy might compensate for lack of fit. Therefore, brand managers may overcome problems caused by lower perceived fit, and succeed with business expansion opportunities that might be found in lower fit categories.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 70%, University of Westminster, course: Branding Management, language: English, abstract: Corporate brands are defined by many as one of the most fascinating phenomena of the 20th century's business environment. In today's reality they are also considered sometimes as a religion, a belief, or even a lifestyle; they are adored, venerated, and coveted, by people and organizations alike (Keller, 2008). Balmer in his article Corporate Brands: what are they? What of them? (2003), defined corporate brands as a product of an organization's corporate strategy, mission, image, and activities, which communicates brand's values and in the meantime affords a means of differentiation from their competitors. It is also said to enhance the esteem and loyalty of the stakeholders for the organization. This paper will give an examination of the nature, the typology and the management of a well known corporate brand operating in the Tourism industry: Royal Caribbean Cruises Line Ltd (RCCL). Adam Weaver in his article Complexity at sea: Managing brands within the cruise industry (2008), stresses how in the late eighties, corporate consolidation within the cruise industry, had as a result many cruise brands to be a part of a brand portfolio. In the complexity of the cruise industry, culture, languages and country of origins represent a major challenge for managers when adapting their brands across an international environment and portfolios are always bigger (Weaver, 2008). Originally Royal Caribbean Cruise LTD's strategy to overcome the complexity of this issue has been to opt for a Global brand strategy instead of a multiple decentralized local brands strategy, which on the other hand, has been Carnival Corporation's main strategy, also main RCCL competitor, as well as market leader for the global cruise industry (Weaver, 2008).

Diploma Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,0, Aachen University of Applied Sciences, 65 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper argues that brand portfolio management is an inevitable discipline in marketing and has to be applied in the business practice. It presents the current literature about this topic, beginning with the general branding theories, covering basics and first approaches to brand portfolio management, and also takes the international focus on brand portfolio management. It shows a case-study of the fast moving consumer goods producer Unilever. Its "Path to Growth" strategy, where Unilever went through the biggest restructuring efforts in its history, is presented and analysed. The Unilever "Path to Growth" strategy, was a five year restructuring plan launched in 1999, in which Unilever sold an disinvested many established and smaller brands, cut substantial amounts of costs, laid off thousands of employees and restructured their brand portfolio considerably. The weaknesses and the benefits of "Path to Growth" are shown, and also brand portfolio management in general is described in this context. The Unilever case is analysed in detail. The motivations for brand portfolio management in general, and the specific restructuring campaign are shown and explained. Financial and qualitative analysis is taken. The outcome of the restructurings is evaluated and conclusions are taken. Recommendations for further studies are made and an outlook is given.

Powerful product, country, and functional silos are jeopardizing companies' marketing efforts. Because of silos, firms misallocate resources, send inconsistent messages to the marketplace, and fail to leverage scale economies and successes--all of which can threaten a company's survival. As David Aaker shows in Spanning Silos, the unfettered decentralization that produces silos is no longer feasible in today's marketplace. It's up to chief marketing officers to break down silo walls to foster cooperation and synergy. This isn't easy: silo teams guard their autonomy vigorously. As proof of their power, consider the fact that the average CMO tenure is just twenty-three months. How to proceed? Drawing on interviews with CMOs, Aaker explains how to: Strength your credibility with silo teams and your CEO Use cross-functional teams and other strategic linking devices Foster communication across silos Select the right CMO role-- from facilitator to strategic captain Develop common planning processes Adapt your brand strategy to silo units Allocate marketing dollars strategically across silos Develop silo-spanning marketing programs In this age of dynamic markets, new media, and globalization, getting the different parts of your organization to collaborate is more critical--and more difficult--than ever. This book gives you the road map you need to accomplish that feat.
