Balancing the relevant factors within your company
The 7S Model, developed by employees of the McKinsey management consultancy in the 1970s, focuses on the elements that characterize a company and interact to ensure its success. The model distinguishes between soft and hard factors: hard factors (strategy, structure, and systems) are those which, compared to soft factors (skills, style, staff, and shared values), are easier to quantify in concrete terms.
Whilst the soft factors are far more difficult to measure, they are just as important as the hard ones. Balancing all these factors is fundamental to the success of any company. So the 7S Model aims to comprehensively analyze all seven factors, and to work out an actual and target state for each factor in order to establish a balanced relationship between the factors and thereby optimize your business.
