Nokia looks to reorganisation to promote innovation and execution

Nokia has announced a company reorganisation, which it says will increase competitiveness and allow it to deliver innovative product to the market faster. Nokia is planning to introduce a simplified structure for it devices and services business; it will comprise three components: Mobile Solutions, Mobile Phones and Markets. The new structure applies from July 1st 2010. Nokia have also appointed a new CTO, Rich Green, previously at Sun, who has many years of Silicon Valley experience. Read on for further details.

Read on in the full article.

This means that, finally, there will be a unified strategy for the development of devices. Much better than having separate Eseries, Nseries, et al. development teams/departments.

I know that corporate structures have rarely anything to do with logic, but aren't mobile phones part of mobile solutions? It's like having separate squares and rectangles divisions

Nokia is losing its ground. Moving people from one department to other won't change anything. Nokia needs to change its perspective/approach, becoming ACTIVE and not REACTIVE.

Cheers,
Miki

Ah yes. The 'Nokia is losing ground' argument.

That would be true if Nokia's share of the non-US smartphone market wasn't 55% compared to Apple's 12% and RIM's 10%.

Nokia do need to do something about the US but I think that kind of puts things in perspective.

Considering that most of Europe will likely be going into flat or negative GDP, China is slowing, while the U.S. is in the beginnings of a minor economic recovery, Nokia's U.S. strategy-fix is likely moving higher on Nokia executive To-Do lists.

The new corporate structure looks a bit like Windows Phone 7!

good news, at least to these (US) eyes. There seems to be a fairly frequent argument that goes like .... what does Nokia have to worry about, they still have x% of the smartphone market...... Maybe so, but if you are not moving forward, you are moving backward and that means others are catching you if you're at the front of the pack.... It's been said that, long term, there isn't enough room for all the existing smartphone OS' (Android, Apple, RIM, Symbian, Web OS, Windows). 1 of the dynamics of the HP/Palm acquisition. I do think the market is going to get very very competetive at the upper end with increasing commidization and falling margins. Not all the listed platforms will survive in their current state. I think Nokia is responding to that reality.

Nokia have not given up on the US market, but I think they have come to the realisation that they are not going to manage it with the current generation of platforms products. Look particularly to MeeGo, but also Symbian^4 this time next year.

Of course the difference is for Nokia the US i just one market. Their global and market scope and scale marks them out as being a bit different from RIM and Apple in particular.

Market share. Park it there. Who really cares. Apple can have only 10% - 16% of the global market and still make as much money as they do because they make premium priced products that people like and purchase. Nokia has 55% of the global market selling to bottom feeders that puts reindeer meat on the tables in Espoo. So at this time next year when the oh so special Symbianą4 hits the stores and Apple releases the 5 generation iPhone, people will still pick their products with Nokia and Apple still surviving. It does not matter one bit.

Man, their main challenge is still in the software area; I'm not sure what an executive shuffle is going to do about that. Nokia sure are banking their high-end hopes on Meego.

I hope it works out for them, but if it doesn't what's their fall back position? Symbian? Next year, Symbian 4 will be competing against the new Blackberry OS, Android 3 or 4, and iPhone 5, not to mention HP/Palm and Windows Phone 7.

In the low end, those Asian manufacturers are out for blood.

It would be nice if we could actually see some action from them.

Developers, advertisement agencies and carriers I would imagine.

As for those going on about the next generation of operating systems I would point out the ugly and basic S60v3 and S60v5 has been selling vastly more units than any of the current new and shiny UIs and usually the next two or three in the pecking order combined.

The 'Nokia is dead' brigade have been shouting the same thing for nearly three years and they continue to be wrong. Nokia do have issues but they look on the way to resolving those.
