Brand Quality: The CQ & EQ Test

We wondered…

What do brands do to build and grow relationships with their audience, customers?

How far do they go?

We wondered…

Restaurants have it. Movies have it. Hotels have it.

Why don’t (Indian) brands have it?


To develop a Qualitative Scorecard for Indian Brands that involves a 360 degree review of a brand. It combines qualitative and technical scoring system that captures all brand aspects, assets & touchpoints.


The project aims to building awareness on brand business and evangelise 360 degree brand building.

In turn, the exercise inspire holistic, authentic brand creation by opening up board room conversations on qualitative value of brand and its assets. The people-centric brand building necessitates greater involvment of right brand thinking and associated domain experts - designers, behavioural thinkers, innovators, storytellers, trainers & more.
