training CourcesSignificance of 7'S in business

Course Description

How do you go about analyzing how well your organization is positioned to achieve its intended objective? This is a question that has been asked for many years, and there are many different answers. Some approaches look at internal factors, others look at external ones, some combine these perspectives, and others look for congruence between various aspects of the organization being studied. Ultimately, the issue comes down to which factors to study.

The McKinsey 7'S model is one that can be applied to almost any organizational or team effectiveness issue. If something within your organization or team isn't working, chances are there is inconsistency between some of the elements identified by this classic model. Once these inconsistencies are revealed, you can work to align the internal elements to make sure they are all contributing to the shared goals and values.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of 7'S in an organization

  • Improve the performance of a company.

  • Examine the likely effects of future changes within a company.

  • Align departments and processes during a merger or acquisition.

  • Determine how best to implement a proposed strategy.
