Tackling Change in Business by Kerstin Van Eckert

Tackling Change in Business with the 7S Model by Kerstin Van Eckert

In this video for the BTN, Kerstin provides a short overview of the 7S model – a practical tool and logic for tackling change in business. It explores how all aspects of a business are impacted and interdependent. 
The model is based on the premise that, for an organisation to perform well, 7 elements need to be aligned and mutually reinforcing – the business example in this video demonstrates the interdependencies. The model can be used to identify what needs to be (re)aligned or how to maintain alignment (and performance) during times of change. It effectively illustrates the organisational impact when managing accelerated change like digitalisation.
