With the explosion of brands in today's marketplace, a mastery of brand management has become essential to successful business strategy. Faced with an increasingly complex landscape of multiple products, global reach, and dynamic markets, many companies don't know how to make the tough choices necessary to avoid the disorganized proliferation of brands and sub-brands that don't project a clear identity. Now, for the first time, David Aaker defines the structure and scope of the brand portfolio strategy firms must put in place to get the most from their brands. Cited as " the most called-upon expert on branding in the United States" by Advertising Week, Aaker shares tools and concepts for creating a well-articulated brand structure that supports strategy - replaces waste with synergy, confusion with clarity, and missed opportunities with leveraged assets. He shows how to: Keep brands relevant Energize and differentiate brands Grow by leveraging brand assets Participate in value and premium niches Filled with fresh case studies and examples form brand portfolio strategy pioneers - such as Coke, Citibank, Sony, Hewlett-Packard, Visa and Volvo - this book is a crucial addition to the literature.

Review:

Bernhard Eggli Managing Director, Head of Brand Management, UBS There's no authority on branding to equal David Aaker, and here he shows again his weight of experience and keenness of insight. This is a thoughtful exploration of how to structure, manage, and extend a brand portfolio for maximum value. The passages on how to energize and differentiate a brand are especially illuminating. Excellent.

Sam Hill President, Helios Consulting; former Vice Chairman, DMB&B Brand portfolio optimization will be the value-creating management approach of the next decade, and will change the way we do business as fundamentally as has business process reengineering or six sigma. Dr. Aaker has written a simple and pragmatic guidebook that will be tremendously useful to strategists. He has almost single-handedly transformed branding from an art into a science, and no one is better qualified to lead the discussion on brand portfolio strategy.

Anil Menon Vice President, Corporate Brand Strategy & Worldwide Market Intelligence, IBM Corporation Effective branding is a mission-critical business priority. And, as product-markets increasingly commoditize, a clear brand strategy can offer a path to competitive differentiation, particularly for B2B companies. Professor Aaker is at his brilliant best in this book with clear advice on how to make brands 'real' in the daily life of an organization and relevant in the marketplace.

Philip Kotler Professor of International Marketing, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University Brand Portfolio Strategy is a 'must' read for any company saddled with brands whose roles and relationships go begging for clarification and wiser direction. David Aaker, our most original conceptual thinker on branding, has again pushed brand management into exciting new territory.

John Elkins, EVP, Global Brand, Marketing & Corporate Relations, Visa International With timely insight, Aaker shows how to use portfolio tools to help firms address the strategic challenge of staying relevant and differentiated in dynamic markets.

Anna Catalano Group Vice President, Marketing, BP Aaker's epilogue of 20 takeaways should be a bible for all brand managers who want to drive business success.

Peter Sealey Ph.D., former Chief Marketing Officer, The Coca-Cola Company Brand Portfolio Strategy hits the mark dead center into the most relevant and hotly debated topic in marketing today. Aaker builds on his previous trilogy of seminal branding books with his best offering yet -- a great strategic and practical read.
