Anssi Vanjoki has just resigned from Nokia.

This is potentially a positive development for Nokia as the “fightback” as Vanjoki defined it was certain to fail. His departure might allow a new team to accelerate the response to the disruption using an asymmetric approach. The odds are massively stacked against Nokia but the more turnover is seen at high levels of the organization the better their chances.
