Unplanned eventualities and unexpected incidents represent normal and inevitable elements in the running of any business.  In such instances, the effectiveness of contingency plans and the way in which they are implemented will determine the overall outcome.  Being able to respond strongly and competently to any imaginable crisis is the mark of a reliable and robust business.  By contrast, businesses unable to cope with potential crises are each day facing a dangerously uncertain future.
