My finnish heart is in sorrow this beautifully sunny day. Big guys who suddenly find themselves loosing, do stupid things. So did Nokia. Even though they were first with what later became success stories for others, they fumbled it all away, and never had the selfconfidence to trust themselves. They found a fat, ugly Microsoft looser who used to lead the division maintaining Office (!). This totally talentless minister of the devil, they thought would be a good leader... Today the inevitable happened - Elop annonced the engagement with Microsoft. Surprise.
What would you expect of a leader that says this to you: "I believe we have lacked accountability and leadership to align and direct the company through these disruptive times. We had a series of misses. We haven't been delivering innovation fast enough. We're not collaborating internally."
Big companies shouldn't be allowed to even exist and this is a good example of that. How can one looser developing shit buy another looser for nothing? Imagine how much money will be thrown into this burning pile of crap!
I really like Canadians, but this is just too much. Nokia, rest in peace.
And Finland - we've taken harder blows before.
