I completely re-evaluated the role of innovation in business growth: before reading this book I have to admit I thought it only entailed product new features and technologies enhancements, while now I see it has everything to do with meeting customer needs and uncovering a business USP, which automatically translates in sales! Could not recommend it more!

Unlike most business innovation books I read over the last years (and even decades) when reading How to create innovation you immediately understand the authors have been there, innovating and transforming some of the world's most amazing brands. Great work!

Not only this book offers the most comprehensive innovation and business change overview but it really helps you take the next step, driving you step by step from theory to practice (also with super useful background notes and driving questions)

I really enjoyed the whole book, but mostly the culture chapter, mainly because I always failed to acknowledge its major role in favouring or inhibiting business growth. Loved the graphics that helped connect all the dots in a visually appealing (and way easier) way.

We’been willing to innovate our business for some years now, but then we always got stuck before we even started, because basically we had no idea where to start…This book helped us do just that: find the right starting point with guiding questions and an incredibly comprehensive innovation overview.

Thousands of organizations leverage the UNITE models - these are some of them ...

Why we use it

Organizations thrive when all of their elements are working together toward a common goal. The 7S Framework analyzes the various pieces of a business to ensure they are operating in harmony.

Through the Framework, we can identify where our business pieces don’t align, begin efforts to change how the organization works, and improve performance and communication.

The framework is important because it helps organizations understand the complex interplay between different elements of the organization, and how they can be aligned to achieve the organization’s goals.

How It Works

The framework is useful for organizations undergoing change as it helps identify areas that need improvement and aligning them to achieve their goals.
The seven elements the framework investigates are:
1. Strategy: The direction and scope of the organization over the long term.
2. Structure: The way in which the organization is structured, including the design of roles, responsibilities, and communication.
3. Systems: The formal and informal procedures, processes, and routines that determine how the organization does its work.
4. Shared values: The values and beliefs that are shared by the members of the organization.
5. Skills: The abilities and competencies of the organization’s team members.
6. Staff: The people who work in the organization, including their number, qualifications, and experience.
7. Style: The leadership style of the organization, including how decisions are made.

What is the goal of the model?

The point of the 7-S Framework is to align all of the business’s elements so they best work together to reach the organization’s goals.
