The McKinsey 7-S Strategy Model is a business framework used to evaluate organizational effectiveness and alignment. It identifies 7 internal, interrelated organizational elements: Shared Vision, Strategy, Structure, Systems, Style, Staff, and Skills. These elements need to be aligned for the organization or initiative to be successful.

This framework can be used to understand our organization and leverage it to maximize efficiency and profitability. It can also be used in situations where an alignment perspective is useful. The scope of these situations doesn't matter--for instance, it can be applied to elements of a project or of a team.

This document explains the framework and includes PowerPoint templates to be used for your own presentations and analysis.

The basic premise of the model is that there are seven internal, interrelated aspects of an organization that need to be aligned for the organization to be successful. This framework can be used to understand our organization and leverage it to maximize efficiency and profitability. It can also be used in situations where an alignment perspective is useful. The scope of these situations doesn’t matter—for instance, it can be applied to elements of a project or of a team. The 7-S Model was developed by two McKinsey consultants, Tom Peters and Robert Waterman. • Strategy • Structure • Systems • Shared Values •Style •Staff •Skills 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Structure Systems Style Staff Skills Strategy Shared Values
