Nvidia McKinsey 7S model illustrates the ways in which seven elements of businesses can be aligned to increase effectiveness. According to the framework strategy, structure and systems represent hard elements, whereas shared values, skills, style and staff are soft elements. McKinsey 7S model stresses the presence of strong links between elements in a way that a change in one element causes changes in others. The model positions shared values are positioned at the core remaining elements, because shared values guide employee behaviour with implications on their performance.

Strategy.  Nvidia business strategy benefits from first mover advantage systematically. This has been the case with GPU, Computer Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) and invented deep learning hardware accelerators, such as the Tesla V100 and T4 GPUs  and a range of other products. However the sustainability of this strategy in the long-term perspective requires the regular pipeline of new products through effective investment in research and development.

Structure.  As one of the largest multinational technology companies in the world Nvidia organizational structure integrates the elements of functional and hybrid structures. Within the company business processes are divided into various divisions with highly specialised employees with the relevant skills and competencies attached into respective divisions. Furthermore, the senior management forms temporary project groups to develop new products or for other initiatives and group members report to multiple superiors for the duration of project.

Systems. Nvidia depends on a wide range of systems for the business to operate smoothly. These include, but not limited to employee recruitment and selection, team development and orientation, transaction processing, customer relationship management, business intelligence and knowledge management. Each system has its KPIs and controls in place and they are monitored systematically.
