How to Communicate Effectively Ones' Resignation?

Suppose a person gets a better job opportunity which he/she has always wanted to pursue, but the new organization is expecting immediate joining.
How to communicate effectively that you are resigning to the previous / current organization?
Note: The current organization has a notice period and the person will not be able to complete that notice period. A buy back of the notice period option exists.
How should this situation be handled by the employee?

How to Communicate Effectively that you are Resigning

In my view it is best to inform your direct supervisor as early as possible in order to allow your current employer to prepare on time and avoid unnecessary damage. You want to leave in a good, open and professional atmosphere. Remember you never know if and when and how you will again have contact with this employer or with your supervisor.
On the other hand it is smart not to be too early and wait until you have a written and fully agreed contract with your new employer. You want to avoid that you already informed your current employer that you are resigning, but the contract with the new employer is ultimately not signed or withdrawn at the last moment for some reason. There can be many reasons for that to happen.
