The fact is that your brand is a system that operates in a very complex and unforgiving
ecosystem. As a result we have developed a brand optimisation methodology we call
Brand Systemics – this methodology views your brand as a system that is either
performing optimally or non-optimally.
If your brand is a system, it means that it needs to operate according to specific rules in order to
either increase performance or at least perform at a stable level within the Ecosystem.
What is this?2
The modern brand environment is far
too complex and competitive to view
your brand as mere mask, message or
set of artefacts and symbols. Your brand
is a system of meaning and value that is
comprised out of a whole range of
interrelated components and parts that
could wreak havoc on your brand
performance if not optimally utilised or
Brand Systemics 9
The Why of Brand Systemics?3
The modern brand ecosystem is an exceptionally unforgiving place to operate in. Within
this ecosystem your brand is assaulted by a multitude of market forces and drivers that it
needs to absorb, observe, orientate around and effectively act against or with.
Therefore it is becoming essential to view your brand as a system - we define it as a
system of meaning & value. This system needs to outperform the other competing or
substitute systems that stakeholders can use in place of your brand. The system
therefore needs to perform optimally, be structurally sound, be resilient and dynamic in
nature, i.e. evolution and innovation ready
As a result using systemic thinking and theory of constraints thinking we have developed
Brand Systemics. Brand Systemics helps you to define and build a better brand system
that can help your business to better perform within its market ecosystem.

What does it do?4
If applied correctly, Brand Systemics can
help to increase the performance of your
brand within its Ecosystem.
We start out by understanding the
Ecosystem the brand operates within
and how your brand is currently
performing within that ecosystem.
The end result is then to define what the
optimal brand system needs to look like
in order to effectively compete and thrive
within the ecosystem. I.e. what does
your brand system need to look like and
according to what systemic rules does it
need to operate in order to be
Brand Systemics 12
The modern brand ecosystem is a scary
place the operating within.
The Brand construct is quickly becoming one of the biggest business operating
investments as well as one of the biggest sources of share equity growth and investor
It is therefore essential to ensure that the way your brand is functioning is optimal,
efficient and viable in order for it to grow and thrive. In a market place that is becoming
ever increasingly competitive, you need to maximise and optimise every single element
of your brand.
Why does Brand Systemics matter?
