Has Nokia gone Soft?

While Disruptive Innovation maybe the Management Strategy that Nokia is looking to follow to continue Leadership .... it is yet to be seen if this will make them go the way of Philips or IBM...

Having been the undisputed leader in mobile hardware tech for close to 2 decades, and having hung onto – “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” Symbian in the software space.

First, President and CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo was replaced by Ex-Microsoft’s Stephen Elop… probably resulting in the resignation of Anssi Vanjoki, the head of Nokia’s Mobile Solutions unit on Sep 13, 2010, just a day before Nokia’s World 2010 Global Event.

Nokia also confirmed that its longtime board chairman, Jorma Ollila, might step down from the board after the company’s general meeting in 2012.

Is this a case of Nokia’s strategic thinking or knee-jerk blaming - bottom line gaming?

Can a Leopard change its spots?

I’d rather have the old leopard back…

Stick to feature phones Nokia… Leave the smarties alone…. Focus on your broadbase, and leverage your market and distribution domination.
