7-S and Change Management

In a change management program all 7 S-es must be included. So it is not a tool to change, but a tool to be in control of all elements.

Using 7S for Change Management

One obvious way to use 7S in change management would be to analyze, describe, discuss and communicate the CURRENT situation and the FUTURE (desired) situation with respect to each element and then to design ways or strategies to go from A to B.

7-S for Change Management

The 7-S framework provides a suitable framework for developing a change management programme. In the first step in a change management development process we decide what the change objective will be.
The next steps are to identify what will have to changed within each of the 7 S's in order to reach the objective.
This can only be an iterative (repeating) process because changes in one of the seven may impact upon each of the other six.
Also remember that "systems" means all business processes, including financial.
The proper use of the 7 S's as an analysis tool will help to ensure that all issues will be addressed during development of the change programme.
