I don't think there's any way to do this automatically when you change
the TODO state of the entry.

The simplest way I can think of is to do C-c C-s +7 (i.e., call
org-schedule and give a new date a week later at the prompt). If doing
this on a different day than the scheduled day, you'll need to change
the interval you enter (e.g., if you missed it by 2 days, enter +5) or
type in the new date manually.

Another option is C-c C-x c (i.e., org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift).
Clone the tree one time, with a shift of one week, then delete the old
tree. The advantage of this option is that the time shift will be
relative to the old scheduled/deadline date, not the date on which you
run the command, so you can always say +1w.

Hope that helps!
