The Three Pillars of Nokia Strategy - Have All Failed.

Anonymous Coward writes | about 2 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "When all 3 legs of your 3-legged strategy fail, what do you do? You rush — run run run — to change your total strategy. But what would a madman do? — Read Tommi Ahonen's new article to find out. Is the Nokia board either asleep at the wheel, or incompetent, or in collusion with the incompetent CEO? Tommi gives full details, not just of how Nokia's Windows phone strategy has failed, but how this has spread to other parts of the companies technology and the "Elop Effect" has single-handedly destroyed [...] Europe's biggest tech giant" and leaves us only with the question: Why is Nokia's board failing to act?

We've discussed Tommi's articles before where he was correctly predicting Windows phones market failure at a point where others were claiming that "the Lumia line is, in fact, selling quite nicely""

Nokia N9 to infinity and beyond (1)

SpzToid (869795) | about 2 years ago | (#41640357)

Had the open, linux strategy that precedeed the Elop-era prevailed, (albeit with better, more attuned management), sales of the Nokia N9 and Meego sucessors (such the 950 with a quality keyboard) would have propelled the company arguably more profitably (along with continued legacy support for Symbian), than the eventual burning-platform-result that Windows Phone has produced, 'short-term'. Time is money after all, Mr. Elop, so what have you got to say for yourself, to the board of Nokia and its stakeholders they are accountable to? Why should we follow your 'leadership' any longer?

Those people assocated with the N9 development did a great job delivering on the prior strategy in-place before you arrived, even with your direct meddling at the launch, (and your Directed-denial of N9 market availability to the EU and USA to support your Microsoft portfolio and perks)? The N9 team was rewarded with termination. What have you to say for yourself in defense Mr. Elop? What have you got to show that is better than what the N9 team delivered to market for sale in Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa in September, 2011?
