Team One's The Legacy Lab Releases The Legacy Makers 100


A new measure of brand value based on long-term contributions to people and society, not short-term market value

Team One's The Legacy Lab Releases The Legacy Makers 100

The Legacy Lab, Team One’s brand consultancy and thought leadership practice, has announced the results of its new study - The Legacy Makers 100 - recognising brands making an enduring contribution to people and society. This ranking of 100 of the world's most impactful brands reflects The Legacy Lab's ongoing commitment to exploring the dynamics of long-term brand building in today's short-term business culture. The Legacy Makers 100 was created using The Legacy Makers Index (LMI) - a first of its kind quantitative tool used to capture consumer perceptions about a brand’s contributions to making better products and services and creating a better world.

Designed to be a forward-looking measure of brand value, the LMI provides marketers with an empirical gauge to assess a brand’s resilience to future shocks, while ensuring brands can also enhance their relevance over time. Brands with a high LMI are those that are seen by consumers to be irreplaceable in culture.

This year’s inaugural Legacy Makers 100 brands are:

1. Johns Hopkins Medicine                  .

Mark Miller, the chief strategy officer at Team One and the co-author of the business book, 'Legacy in the Making' (McGraw Hill), said, “With the world progressing beyond the disruptions caused by covid-19, a new generation of mindful leaders is coming to the fore - leaders that are using their brand's resources to improve the quality of people's lives and bring about a positive and lasting change in the world.” According to Miller, “this new era requires a new brand-building playbook and a new measure of brand value. The Legacy Lab team has developed a new metric - better tailored to usher in the new age of conscientious brand stewardship for both older, more established brands and those newer to their legacy making journey.”

In total, the LMI ranked hundreds of companies representing more than 50 distinct categories. Nominations were made by the top business and communication schools in US and evaluated by a sample of 10,000 adults in the United States. The survey tool consists of two main components - Brand Ethos and Brand Endurance. The framework can be applied to evaluate any brand with an output that can be used to shape a brand’s future strategy.

“We thought it was time for all those brand leaders dedicated to making a lasting difference in the world to have a reliable indicator of their brand’s future potential, not just its past performance,” said Chandler Mount, collaborator on the study and founder and CEO of the Affluent Consumer Research Company, a frequent partner of Team One. “More than an old-fashioned map, we envision the new Legacy Makers Index becoming an invaluable instrument to help Modern Legacy Makers chart new courses to better futures.”
