Corporate identity is a vital and dynamic concept that takes many forms: from the brand and logo to the product and the company’s reputation. One of the keys to a successful business presence hinges on efficient management of corporate identity.

Creating a corporate identity metaphorically can be identified as the activation of your corporate magnetic forces. Forces that will determine your company’s identity within the market and attract clients based on the exhibited reflection of the magnetic corporate traits.

Indeed, expressing corporate identity is a dynamic process (Gioia, Schultz and Corley, 2000), evolving as the organizational context changes and requires active management through the use of an appropriate model.

The quest for investigating the corporate identity context has been of increasing concern for researchers, managers, professionals, and entrepreneurs who regard identity formation as critical to corporate success.

You will be acquainted with the six-station corporate identity model & will learn how to use it to manage your company's identity effectively.

It is known that in any concept the existence of different variables plays a significant role in managing and executing a model.
The area of corporate identity involves interaction among many variables. For this reason, defining the elements of the corporate identity model which will be used to manage your corporate identity should fit the corporate identity context which is quite complex due to its multidisciplinary nature.
Indeed, developing and managing corporate identity is not a mechanical process, but rather a continuous, synergistic and a sequential set of executed activities.
This is portrayed in the six station model, which depicts the management of corporate identity as a circular process, designating sequential synergies and effects produced within each station - stages. The model is composed of six stations (stages) and binds the sequential events produced at each station.

The components of the six station corporate identity model are:

  1. The Head Station, which encompasses Mission - Vision - Values, Leadership, and Top Management.
  2. The Strategy Station, which consists of Corporate Brands, Strategy, and Marketing.
  3. The Creativity Station, which encompasses Visual Symbolism and Corporate Visual Identity Systems.
  4. The Communication Station, which consists of Traditional and Digital Communication.
  5. The Human Power Station which includes employees (staff) and stakeholders.
  6. The Critical Triplet Station, which includes aspects of Corporate Reputation, Corporate Image, and Corporate Personality.

The model will teach you how to conduct a series of audits and the processes needed to manage your corporate identity via the following tools.

  • How to proceed with an MV2 Audit & Analysis
  • How to draft and execute a – C-sitan Analysis
  • How to create and use a CorpSeg Audit and analysis
  • How to evaluate a Corporate Strategy via CIS Audit along with analysis of company’s brands
  • How to proceed with E2VA analysis (exoteric and esoteric visual audits) focused on Corporate Symbolism
  • How to proceed with a “PIR audit,” focusing on the evaluation of a company’s corporate reputation, personality, and image. Stakeholders’ analysis will be included.
All findings will be accumulated and triangulated together to construct the integrated corporate SWOT matrix (CorpSWOTmatrix). This matrix will include all findings derived from the audits conducted in the six stages of revealing corporate identity.
