Role Strategic Planning’s role at Brain Value.

Our ambition is to support brands in the definition of their marketing strategy.

Strategic Planning is embedded into and enriches our projects by furthering them via a range of specific tools aimed at facilitating the transformation of research results into decision-making marketing.

Our credo: elaborating marketing strategies relies on the understanding and analysis of the following fundamentals

Invented by British advertising firms, Strategic Planning in communication agencies reflects the need to bring consumer relevance into brand and market challenges.

We apply this philosophy and believe that cultural friction creates sparks. Our Strategic Planning team comes from the world of advertising agencies.

Consequently, and through synergy with research studies, they offer further insights into fundamentals:
the category, trends, weak signals or brand DNA; to facilitate the elaboration of your strategies.
