Performing LEGO: Co-Constructing Stakeholder and Brand Identity

Sylvia von Wallpach, Andrea Hemetsberger, Peter Espersen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


We study the interactive narratives that underpin the emergence of corporate brand identity in new venture SMEs. We apply a process perspective that considers the complex interactions between layers of identities and sense-making in and around the organisation in the stakeholder eco-system. We propose a typology of brand identity drivers that reflects a co-creative approach to the emergence of brand identity.
