Special Situations

Allon Shevat GR 2010 had adapted OD to several interventions in special situations: Rapid Growth, Downsizing, Mergers, Industrial Unrest and Acute Diversity

Rapid Growth

Rapid growth overstretches organizations’ structural and managerial capabilities, throwing organizations into a form of organizing which threatens the very achievements that the rapid growth is achieving. Too often, drunk with a sense of false security, huge organizational errors can be made during these giddy periods.

Allon Shevat GR 2010 has developed an effective support system for rapid growth that includes:

  • position papers about rapid growth best-practices, managerial training adapted for rapid growth
  • rapid-deployment diagnostic and intervention tools
  • flexible and useful tools for all aspects of growth, including tool kits, training and consultation.

Allon has supported the rapid growth of such firms as Indigo, Comverse, Tadiran, and Somanetworks.


Downsizing is a complex organizational process which must be handled elegantly and effectively. Allon provides tool kits and training to support the successful implementation of this painful process.

After the downsizing process is finished, organizations then go through a problematic and often traumatic period of adaptation with low morale, productivity and failing trust in management. We provides tool kits, coaching and training to support back to business.

Allon has supported hundreds of downsizing projects in both the low and high tech sector.

Mergers and PMI
