Using McKinsey 7-S Model for Organizing Innovation

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 the challenge of making companies more innovative?

7S and Innovation

Success in / Lack of innovation is often related to morale. This could result from a Structure with too many layers, form a lack of Shared values, from the Style how people are managed, from Systems that are not efficient and so on.
You should present results in that format and use strategic values to add meaning.
