I would like to conduct a case study on Organization culture and values and the involvement of top management in understanding the cultural values and differences prevaling in an Organization.
I would like to use the McKinsey's 7 S framework to evaluate the current organization structure, systems and process and the values prevailing in the sub cultures existing among the employees.
I would also like to use Schien's three levels of culture model of Artifacts, Norms and Assumptions to understand the Organization's culture.
At the end, I would like to draw a contrast with Senge's Five disciplines on learning organizations and highlight the imporatance of creating a learning culture in the Organization.
Scholars and Experts please let me know if I need to add on any other O.D models for this purpose.
Thanks in advance.

Dear Mayuk,
Good to know that you will use McKinsey's '7S' framework. But I need to understand why you are doing all this? Is it a part of your MBA project or you are HR Manager and do it for your organisation?
What action will you take once the results are out?
Lastly, how are you going to assess your organisation or McKinsey's '7S' framework?

Hi Dinesh,
Nice to know you. I am doing my doctoral studies from VTU, Belgaum and working on a case study on importance of Organization Culture and Values - a strategic perspective'.
Thanks for your words
Best Regards,

Dear Mayuk,
You can refer the following book for McKinsey's '7S' framework: -
Mastering Business Planning and Strategy by Paul M Elkin, published by Thorogood.
This is a very good book, you can refer it.
But then I have a doubt. Strategy is one thing and organisation's culture or values is another. Former is outside-in approach and latter is inside-out approach. How are your going to conjoin these two?

Strategy, Structure and systems are the organizations hardware whereas, staff, skills and styles are the software which acts as the intellect support for the entire organization.
Shared values or the super ordinated goals acts as the cultural glue which acts as the brain to the entire organization. Organization culture and values are directly propotional to the organization's mission and vision and also decides the way people think and act in the organization.
I would like to draw an inference in this context and evaluate how top management involvement in developing culture will result in improving all the 7 S in the organization.
In order to draw the importance and understanding of the organization culture, the three levels of organization culture by Edgar Schein's - artifacts, values and underlying bacic assumptions can be highlighted.
Thanks a ton for your reply and keep in touch....... we can connect at Linkedin.

Hi folks its a informative conversation regarding evaluation of organisations performance. what are the other tools in practice as a alternate to Mckinsey’s 7S framework ? thanks
From India, Gurgaon
Dear Mr Deepak Jain,
Additional tool (and not alternative tool as you asked) to McKinsey's '7S' is SWOT Analysis and Porter's Five Forces Model. You refer any book on strategic management and you will get information about it.
