Extra S-es in the 7S Framework by McKinsey

I was able to utlize the 7S model very effectively to conduct the assessment of the state of the public health system for my research thesis. However, the model was limited in coverage of other critical factors that required assessment and was expanded to include three addional S's. These include:
- 'SETTING' or context within which reform takes place;
- 'STAKEHOLDERS' with their varied roles and interests who play an important role in affecting implementation; and
- 'SEQUENCING', which looks at the manner in which the reforms are implemented.
This expansion may also be applicable to other organizations undergoing reorganization and transformation.


More S-es needed?

It appears this framework (sometimes) requires other attributes to be effective. The addition of other Ss as one member suggests or even other additions not necessarily starting with S can make the framework more effective.
