This paper has presented two leading companies with different kind of strategic choices. Nokia has chosen the strategy with core business while Samsung has chosen the unrelated diversification with various activities. Both strategies have proved to be good, since both companies are leading companies in the world in their businesses.
Nokia is using the same structure and managerial characteristics around the world.
Samsung changes the strategy according to the market area depending on the local standards.
The managerial characteristics differ strongly, but on the other hand we have to say, that they represent well their cultures; Nokia as a Finnish company represents the western values and Samsung as a Korean, Asian values.
The biggest difference between the companies according to China case is, that Nokia is using the same structure and managerial characteristics around the world, while Samsung changes the strategy according to the market area depending on the local standards.
