Contingency Planning

Contingency planning is a risk mitigation process for developing back-up plans in anticipation of events (scenarios) that might disrupt ‘business as usual’. Business continuity planning is an expanded version of contingency planning that typically encompasses a more comprehensive and extended response plan for getting back to ‘business as usual’. In a well-formatted, highly-detailed research paper, address the need to contingency planning, ensuring to address the following items:

(1) Benefits of scenario events/planning.
(2) Questions to consider when implementing scenario planning.
(3) The common types of scenario planning.

Your paper should meet the following requirements:

  • Be approximately four to six pages in length, not including the required cover page and reference page. (Remember, APA is double spaced)
  • Follow APA 7 guidelines. Your paper should include an introduction, a body with fully developed content, and a conclusion.
  • Support your answers with the readings from the course and at least two scholarly journal articles to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook. The UC Library is a great place to find resources.
  • Be clearly and well-written, concise, and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. You are being graded in part on the quality of your writing.

Answer preview

The advancement of human civilization has made life more predictable by minimizing the extent to which people are exposed to certain risks. Despite the best efforts, however, it is not entirely possible to rule out unexpected adverse events. Developments in social, political, economic, and even technological realms often result in the emergence of new challenges. They may even provide pathways for older threats to morph into newer and deadlier forms. Therefore, contingency planning is a necessary risk mitigation process for people to fall back to whenever disruptive adverse events occur to preserve a certain degree of normalcy amidst the chaos and provide a mechanism for attaining continuity. This paper discusses contingency planning’s significance in the business sphere and highlights some of the most common types of scenario planning.
