McKinsey 7S in Fast Changing Environment: A DYNAMIC 7S Model?

Given that the business environment is changing all the time, what are the strengths and weaknesses of using the 7S Model in an organisation?
Is it necessary to update McKinsey’s model for current volatile times? How?

Responsiveness in the Face of Rapid Changes

Greetings from volatile Guatemala :) In my opinion in the face of uncertainty and change we often react and forget to cover the fundamental bases. The 7S Model provides and reminds us about the key elements for success and provides a framework to research/reflect/review/and respond to change. It it not overly rigid when applied with vision. However keep it light and complete and respond to change - aligning all 7 elements for continued success.

The 7S Model offers a great outlook for laying down the prospective or ontology in creating change for a company. However a selective qualified team is outmost necessary, for adaptive change chain reactions happen.
