Failure Case Study: Carlsberg Beo

Summary

This study explores how products can fail through a lack of clarity in brand messaging and product positioning. Brand guardians can significantly benefit from developing an in-depth understanding of the reasons for the success or failure of new product launches or marketing campaigns.

Key Findings
