McKinsey 7-S Model on Innovation
G.J. van Beeck Calkoen, Coach, Spain

I am interested in the application of the 7-S model on organizing innovation structurally in a company.
For instance: what are the choices available for each S, related to the environment of the company.
In other words: How do you link the 7S model to problem of making companies more innovative?

Lack of innovation is related to morale. Morale assesment results can be linked to 7s. They could be as a result of sructure to many layers, lack of shared values, Style how people are managed,Systems that are not efficient and so on, present results in that format and use strategic values to add meaning.

The first step in guiding a company towards innovation is making it part of the corporate values i.e. shared values at the center of the 7-S system.
