HISTORY
"The Art Of
It was first mentioned in
Japanese Management" by Richard
Pascale & Anthony Athos in 1981.
At around the same time, Tom Peters &
Robert Waterman were exploring what made a
company excellent. The 7 S model was born at
a meeting of these four authors in 1978.
It was taken up as a basic tool by the global
management consultancy company McKinsey.
What is the 7-S
Framework?
It is a management model that describes 7
factors to organize a company in an holistic
and effective way. Together these factors
determine the way in which a corporation
operates. Managers should take into account
all seven of these factors, to be sure of
successful implementation of a strategy. Large
or small. They're all interdependent, so if you
fail to pay proper attention to one of them,
this may effect all others as well. On top of
that, the relative importance of each factor
may vary over time.
