How to make People Own the 7S's

The best way to get people to "own" 7S is to ask them to describe how they see each of the 7 S's operating in your organization
. There are many creative ways to get the data visible. My guess is not everyone has the same view of what is going on or cohesive expectations of where the organization needs to be going.
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.
