"The 'brand' is the total customer experience with the co from advertising, to first digital contact to in-store shop and after care service. Need to include understanding of what brand is/means in retail world. What elements create positive brand experience. How do we manipulate brand experience i.e. good experience to great experience or bad experience to good experience. Need info on brand values. Element 2 should be 'Develop a VM Brand strategy' The elements and perf crit here hardly mention brand. Element 3 It must be clearly specified that the strategy include relevance to the brand. Similarly the performance criteria for element 3 should relate back to the brand and the effects on the brand The performance criteria here have no mention whatsoever of brand or image. "
