What is the McKinsey Approach?
Gurvy Kavei
In the past two years I have been using the 7-Step change model, combined with the Prosci's ADKAR Model. During the process a new leader came in and he was strongly in favour of the McKinsey approach. I never had an opportunity of getting to know more about the McKinsey approach and how it works as I was retrenched with the old furniture of the organisation. Can someone tell me more about the McKinsey approach, its successes and failures.

7-Step Model of McKinsey
Madan Gopal Agarwal, Member
The McKinsey model is a fundamental framework which is equally applicable for Green-field, Growing or Turn-around situations. It starts from ground zero all the way up. Taking Vision / Mission / Goal / Objectives as given, it goes on to Define (Business) Strategy, (Organisation ) Structure needed as support, Systems (& Procedures) needed, Staff (Assortment of Manpower), Skills (required of each person), (Working) Style (of the people in the Organisation) and, lastly, Superordinate Goals (that needs to be achieved). Any add-on, like ADKAR Model, only helps further to fine-tune the approach. I have used it in 7 diverse situations in last 15 years and found immensely effective.

I have found this comment truly useful in the field of research which I am engaged in at this time. Thanks!
