When Jill Little, merchandise and marketing director at John Lewis, recently announced that the retailer was to introduce a value range, it was widely seen as a smart move. The homeware products line has been specifically designed to help John Lewis defend its 'Never knowingly undersold' slogan against supermarkets that have moved into its territory.

An overwhelming number of social media “experts” are calling for companies to surrender control of their brands to a social media empowered public. Even Forrester Research went as far as to suggest that the day of the “brand manager” is dead, calling for a complete overhaul of marketing, in which brand managers are replaced by “brand advocates.” Consumers and companies have always co-owned their brands.

Most commonly, these brand gaps exist between an organization’s “vision” or “brand values” as articulated and promulgated by the executive suite, and the staffers who should be delivering on them. But did anyone bother to let the staff know what those promises actually meant, or how to interpret them in their daily interactions?
