About Journal of Brand Management
Brands have become an inextricable part of our everyday lives—that much is
certain. Equally, everybody knows the rewards of communicating positive
values through intricately managed brands; in fact, the consequences of
inappropriate brand messages can be devastating, if not fatal. Such
realizations are not new of course. Yet brand management remains an
imprecise science, if not an art in itself. That’s why Journal of Brand
Management is essential reading for all those concerned with marketing—and
overseeing—a brand. Journal of Brand Management draws together cutting-edge
analysis and latest thinking from leading figures in the world’s foremost
companies, consultancies and academic institutions.
