smartpower also learned from over seven years of message research in the area of renew-
able energy and energy efficiency that the “environmental” message is not the answer to
motivate consumers to purchase renewable energy technologies. Consumers already under-
stand the environmental benefits of solar power, but those benefits have not been persua-

Finally, and perhaps most crucial from a strategic viewpoint, proﬁts produce a short-term managerial focus. Rising
earnings can easily disguise a decline in shareholder value because earnings ignore the future implications of current
activities. For example, earnings can quickly be boosted by cutting advertising or customer service levels. In the

The difference between a brand and branding
Most experts define what a brand is in one of two ways. The first set of defifinitions focuses on some
of the elements that make up a brand:
• “The intangible sum of a product’s attributes: its name, packaging, and price, its history, its reputation, and the way it’s advertised.”2
• “A name, sign, or symbol used to identify items or services of the seller(s) and to differentiate them from goods of competitors.
Over the past decades, investors, regulators, and industry self-regulatory bodies have forced banks, other financial institutions, and insurance companies to develop organizational structures and processes for the management of credit, market, and operational risk.

Banks operating in the main developed countries have been exposed, since the Seventies,
to four significant drivers of change, mutually interconnected and mutually reinforcing.
The first one is a stronger integration among national financial markets (such as stock
markets and markets for interest rates and FX rates) which made it easier, for economic
shocks, to spread across national boundaries.
It is hard to imagine a time when law was more important to
managers. The rapid growth of unregulated subprime mortgages
and financial derivatives fueled a real estate bubble from
2001 through 2006, during which time executive compensation
in the financial services companies soared. When the bubble
burst in 2007, many executives of these companies walked
away unscathed, leaving employees, stockholders, and taxpayers
holding the bag.
We now focus on Values: Values for customers, for shareholders, for partners and for staff.This chapter begins with a brief discussion of brand, follows by relating the brand to core values, and shows how core values are instrumental in a retailer ideating a compelling concept, developing a meaningful mission statement, and creating a compelling customer experience out of that mission
