McKinsey & Company, a global management consulting firm, has developed its own Change Management Model: a structured approach to managing change within organizations.

While McKinsey’s model does not have a catchy acronym like some other change management models, it follows a series of key principles and steps that organizations can use to effectively plan and implement change.

The seven elements to be found in your organization are:


Organization’s plan of action to achieve its goals and objectives.


The way the organization is organized. This includes its hierarchy, reporting lines, and departments.


Processes, procedures, and routines that are in place to guide the organization’s activities.

Shared values

Core beliefs, values, and corporate culture of the organization.


Capabilities and competencies of the organization’s employees.


The organization’s workforce, including its size, composition, and capabilities.


Leadership style and management practices within the organization.

McKinsey’s Change Management Model is focused on a holistic approach to change that includes leadership commitment, employee engagement, and a strong emphasis on results and data-driven decision-making. 

In the end, this model aims to create a sustainable change that aligns with the organization’s strategic goals and objectives.

The change involves and affects multiple dimensions of the organization. It is useful for strategic changes, such as shifts in business models, entering new markets, or major reorganizations. This model helps leaders assess and align the seven interconnected elements. And ensure they are harmonized to support the desired change.
