Today, great brand development isn’t about genius, it’s about the discovery of value. In a world where customers are smart, competition is fierce, and change is easy, business success cannot rely on a tight message, a pretty promise, and a large megaphone. Instead, success depends on inviting customers on a shared journey toward creating real value.

The Lean Brand shifts the paradigm of control from the 40th floor boardrooms of an agency’s “ivory tower” and places it in the hands of startups and organizations willing to experiment, validate, and build long-term relationships with their customers.

The Lean Brand is the first book to apply lean principles to brand development to help organizations create value-based, passionate relationships with their audience. The Lean Brand is not new jargon for old thinking, but an entirely new approach to brand development to help your company adapt to an evolving marketplace.

The Lean Brand 

Table of Contents (Working)

PART I: THE SHIFT

CHAPTER 1: WHAT IS A BRAND?

Any productive discussion about brand should begin with a clear understanding of what we mean by the term, “brand.” Chapter 1 explores the definition of brand and proposes a Brand Language Ecosystem to make the term, “brand," meaningful once again.

CHAPTER 2: THE MYTH OF THE BRAND GENIUS

The world has changed in dynamic ways all around us, yet brand development has remained relatively static. Chapter 2 is an honest look at the status of branding today and challenges you to reject the cultural myth of branding genius and make room for new thinking once again.

CHAPTER 3: BRAND, MEET LEAN

The purpose of Lean Brand development is to discover the emotional-value being created and for whom that value is being created. Chapter 3 shows you why Lean Brand development favors innovation, through experimentation, managed by validated learning.

CHAPTER 4: THE LEAN BRAND FRAMEWORK

To change our branding approach we need a framework for developing validated and valuable brands. Chapter 4 lays out the Lean Brand Framework and challenges you to cross the development gaps necessary to form a lean brand.

PART II: BUILD: MINIMUM VIABLE BRAND

CHAPTER 5: STORY

Who are you? What do you stand for? What is your WHY? This is your unique rallying point defining what you’re fighting against and what you’re fighting for. Chapter 5 explores how to form relationships in the synchronicity between who you are and who your audience wants to become.

CHAPTER 6: ARTIFACT(S)

Artifacts are expressions of your story. Whether it’s a pink moustache on a car or a hackathon on Google’s campus, the goal is to find artifacts that tell your story and engage people with who you are. Chapter 6 teaches you how to develop artifacts that create value for your audience.

CHAPTER 7: INVITATION

Stop selling and start inspiring. How to decipher the medium, build a message, and deliver it to your audience in a compelling way. Chapter 7 shows you how to create invitations that are active calls for people to join your story.

PART III: MEASURE

CHAPTER 8: THE EMOTIONAL-VALUE STREAM

Generally, products create functional-value through the tasks they accomplish. Brands, however, create emotional-value through the human connections they facilitate. Chapter 8 focuses on discovering your value stream and measuring the emotional-value you are creating.

CHAPTER 9: WADING IN: TESTING EMOTIONAL-VALUE

To validate what’s working and what isn't, you must experiment and test. Chapter 9 provides viability experiments for you to start testing your brand development efforts outside of your building.

PART IV: LEARN: CONTINUOUS ITERATION

CHAPTER 10: START LEAN, GROW LEAN

Brand growth centers around growing your audience, growing your reach, and transitioning your minimum viable brand into a platform to grow from. Chapter 10 shows you how to grow your brand development in a sustainable way.

CHAPTER 11: THE CONTINUOUS BRAND

There is no doubt lean thinking is impacting the enterprise. Chapter 11 is about applying Lean Brand principles to existing brands using parallel innovation techniques between product development and brand development.

CHAPTER 12: THEORY & TOOLS, TOOLS & THEORY

Both theory and tools are necessary in this new world of value-creation. Chapter 12 introduces the Lean Brand Stack – a set of tools to help you apply the principles throughout the book and invites you to be a part of The Lean Brand movement.
