How to make People Own the 7S's

Use the 7 S's as a diagnostic first. Take the data a have cross functional groups create the future 7 S's they need to achieve. 7 S's is a foil for deep conversation and building agreements. Buy in only gets you half way, ownership of the process gets collaborative action to achieve.
