Competitive Edge with 7S Model?

(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

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

The 7S framework is aimed at achieving organisational effectiveness and efficiency. Any organisation that is serious about its livelihood should embrace the model.
