7-s Model as Basis for a Project Audit

Could McKinsey's 7-s model be used as a standard/norm for auditing control over projects in organizations. Anyone with experience on this matter?

7S can be Used to Audit Projects

It is indeed possible to audit projects using the 7S framework:
- Shared values imply project goals/quality/key objectives;
- Strategy can be viewed as the design/approach/project plan;
- Structure defines the communication plan;
- Systems can represent operational tools/methods/mechanisms;
- Staff can represent the resource plan;
- Skills can represent required know-how/training plans/knowledge management;
- Style can be represented as governance model.
This is a high-level interpretation and hope it helps.
