Every company must be efficient, productive, must face the challenges, changes occur in the scenarios in which they operate, operate, which the management must know how to use properly all the administrative skills to work with the achievement of this objective, and ensure competitiveness of the enterprise Some of these significant contributions is that we lay the consulting firm McKinsey & Co, where McKinsey proposes a scheme to get companies to be effective, called the Model of the “Seven S”, which guides organizations in their daily work, with reference to seven factors, which must be treated equally within an organization. It is a true checklist for successfully putting into practice the strategy of the company.

Notes through seven words beginning with “that” the vital factors to consider and act in an integrated manner. The most outstanding feature of this model is that it has been widely used in various prestigious companies and schools administration, such as Harvard and Stanford. That is, a potent combination of theory and practice. Jorge Leon Rodriguez reminds us that the “Seven S” of the organizational structure were first mentioned in “The Art of Japanese Management” by Richard Pascale and Anthony Athos in 1981. These authors have been investigating how Japanese industry had managed to be so successful. About the same time, Tom Peters and Robert Waterman were exploring what makes a great company. Model “Seven S” was born of a meeting of the four authors in 1978. Also appears in the book “In Search of Excellence” by Peters and Waterman, and was taken as a basic tool for the global consulting firm McKinsey.
