Competitive Edge with 7S Model?
Genevy Polan, Project Manager, Philippines

(How) Can a firm achieve a competitive advantage with the 7S framework?
For me its the shared values and style that make up the competitive advantage of a company. It spells what it really is as an organization, bonds the workforce and competes in retaining memory recall to its customers. It simply spells the difference.
The rest of the 7S-es are management obliged routines.
 

 
Each of the 7 S-es can be Important
Ravish Sareen, Management Consultant, United Kingdom
The 7S framework is unique per organization. There is no one size fits all. Thus it is extremely difficult to be replicated by competitors.
The competitive advantage for any organization could be in its culture, the way they do things (systems), the way it hires people (staff), the way it trains them (skill).
 

 
The 7S Framework is Not Aimed Directly at Competitive Advantage
Shala Bareng, Manager, Botswana
The 7S framework is aimed at achieving organisational effectiveness and efficiency. Any organisation that is serious about its livelihood should embrace the model.
 

 
7S is an Analysis Framework not Meant for Design
Steven, CxO / Board, China
7s is an analysis framework; it's not for design and execution to build a competitive advantage. No competition factor is considered in the model.
 

 
7S Model McKinsey and Competition
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
@Steven: You are correct to point out that competition is not directly included in the 7S model. However, note that you CAN actually compare your overall 7S with that of your strongest competitors to understand why and where they are doing better than your own firm (at a high level).
