The start of a new year encourages businesses to look back, and forward. For some that will mean assessing and implementing changes to operations, staffing, developing or launching new products and services. For others it may be about engaging in a rebrand process—rolling out an image that effectively communicates the new (and improved) focus and direction of the business, from the inside out. Contrary to popular belief, rebranding does not start and end with clever logo design. It is about looking at your business, asking the tough questions and making a commitment to bring your business into alignment with the (new) values and direction you are taking.
