Peter Drucker the greatest management thinker said ,” The main job of an organization is to create value”.Interbrand, arguably the world’s best branding consultancy firm redifined the meaning of brand management and has made brands to appear on balance sheet.Interbrand pioneered the development of brand valuation techniques in 1988 for Rank Hovis McDougall (RHM) who was resisting a hostile takeover
Brand value is derived by analyzing a bench-marked performance of parameters that drive and contribute value. It can be awareness, relevance, differentiation, preference and loyalty, market and competitor activity, sales and profitability. It takes time and enormous effort to build a brand, but once a brand is established, it’s very difficult to kill it. To create unfeigned brand value brands need constant investment and constant value analysis because when the going gets tough, it’s the brand that will facilitate recovery.

    Coke is always topping the charts and I guess it is not going to come down unless it fumbles up. Percentage changes are less for the top 3 but there in a world full of brands topping within the top 10 is something big. I was shocked for seeing toyota at the back I accept there is a recession and lots of brands have come downward but Toyota is ranked topper in automobile sector but overall no 7 is something not expected.

    Interbrand valuates brands on current earnings and strength, which is the number of years you would assume the brand to go on. An interesting study is also how Young and Rubicam valuates brands on the basis of strength and stature. Strength in its context is a function of relevance and differentiation, while stature is function of esteem and knowledge!
