Brand and Organization: fitting the needs of target consumers

To be successful in today's turbulent business environment, brand companies need to adopt the kind of organisational structure that allows them to deliver successful brands. Traditional hierarchical structures may be unnecessarily restrictive and prevent companies responding fast and effectively to shiftingconsumer preferences.

Organisational structure is the framework within which brands are managed successfully; one key role in the 21st century is human capital and non-standards pattern in managing knowledge. Work with vast amount of information, know bow to connect across cultures and benefit form globalization besides the well used of technologies in order to add value are some of thefactors that encourage to success brands.

Today's brand strategists say brands evoke distinct associations; they ascribe human personalitytraits to brands; they speak of "long-term relationships with customers" rather than transactional exchanges. Brands carry emotional attachments, brands are your neighbors, your colleagues and your friends. In short, brands have the potential of providing customers with a variety of pleasant, or unpleasant, experiences. Companies must actively manage the brand-customer "relationship".
