1. Introduction
Nokia was originally founded in 1865 as a groundwood paper mill. Today however, Nokia is a huge multinational communications corporation, based out of Espoo, Finland, with global sales of over €42 billion in 2010. Operating in over 150 countries, it is the world’s largest mobile phone manufacturer, with a global device market share of 23.9% as at Q3, 2011 (Gartner, 2011). Nokia also provides digital map information and navigation services in the form of ‘NAVTEQ’ – its wholly owned subsidiary. In 2007 Nokia pursued a joint venture with Siemens to form ‘Nokia Siemens Networks’ – producing telecommunications equipment, solutions and services. Nokia’s current state of affairs however, indicates that it has been adversely affected by the global economic crisis. With a reported Q3 loss of €71m (Nokia, 2011) it has suffered a significant drop of 18.3% in its smartphone market share, between Q3 2010 and Q3 2011 (Engadget, 2011). The purpose of this report is to use a comprehensive strategic analysis to ultimately recommend future strategies that will help Nokia to improve its strategic vision and regain its previous domination within the communications industry. 2.
