Nokia's next phase of strategy
Once known for smartphones, the company is now a business technology company and wants to align itself accordingly. While Nokia still aims to grow its service provider business by selling equipment to telecom companies, its primary emphasis has shifted to supplying gear to other enterprises.
Nokia remains committed to executing its three-phase corporate strategy aimed at achieving sustainable and profitable growth. Going forward, Nokia says, it will have six strategic pillars.
- Grow market share with service providers, driven by continued technology leadership
- Expand the share of Enterprises within customer mix
- Continue to manage portfolio actively, to ensure a path to a leading position in all segments where Nokia decides to compete
- Seize opportunities from sectors beyond mobile devices to monetize IP and continue to invest in R&D
- Implement new business models, such as as-a-Service
- Develop ESG into a competitive advantage and become the trusted provider of choice in industry.
Nokia says the four enablers - future-fit talent, long-term research, digitalization of its operations, and a revitalized brand - will serve as the foundation for its objectives.
