One More S: Solidarity

I think this is a sound model but Solidarity is missing in this model. It should be the 8S model. Solidarity is a concept of oneness. See the concepts of Dr. Abdullah Alama Muhammad Iqbal which has been taken from Quran (the holy book of Allah) and Maulana Romi.

Solidarity in 7S Model

I find there is a soldarity built within this system. It is however easily missed if one does not pay close attention to the overall structure. Part of which is ensuring the corporate values are matched by all participants i.e. managers and non-managers. Hence, the center of the diagram depicting this basic idea. One may find this concept of oneness in more places than the one mentioned. From a martial arts point of view the individual needs to be of one mind combined with the physical nature of the body. In business this same practice is incorporated by a singlemindedness based on accepted corporate values of all parties involved. As a result, I agree with your insight.
