Said Ashish Mishra, Managing Director, Interbrand India: “What’s remarkable about our IP’s history of two decades is that today customer expectations lead businesses and brands. The speed of change in expectations is driven by the now possible immediacy, abundance and intimacy. This means the age of static brand positioning is over. This is a tectonic shift we are heralding for the world of businesses and brands. For decades, the entire discipline of brand-building was based on the concept of brand positioning, but in today’s accelerating markets, customer expectations outstrip static brand positions. What is needed now is a move beyond relevance to uncover and unlock people’s real expectations – finding new opportunities to create utility and desire, and capture imaginations. Align stakeholders and the organization to build investment in the most impactful opportunities. Alter the competitive landscape – build interactions with the greatest utility and desire to move beyond expectations and increase engagement.”
