Abstract: The importance of fostering brands and maximising their performance is a common refrain in the literature. However, there is limited understanding of the brand-building processes underpinned by specific organisational philosophies and capabilities that are critical to brand success. Drawing from the resource-based literature, we offer theoretical and empirical account of how and when the interplay among three specific factors – brand orientation, market orientation and brand management capability, contributes to brand performance. Using data from a sample of firms operating in the consumer goods sector, we find that brand orientation is positively related to brand management capability and subsequent brand performance via market orientation. The results also show that the indirect effect of brand orientation on brand management capability through market orientation is stronger when competitive intensity is high.
