    I got Cadbury's management of salmonella threat in 2006 as successful contingency planning and BP oil spillage in Gulf of Mexico as failed contingency planning. Extra, I have the 'millenium bug' costly hoax which incurred thousands of pounds for unnecessary planning.
    why was cadburys ting good? i can't find anything on it

    Do you guys have any examples of companies which used GOOD contingency planning and avoided losses?
    Use Tesco and their retrenchment from the US. Phillip Clarke and his controlled communication was part of the contingency plan in order to not panic shareholders about the obvious losses made by the disastrous US move

    How do the boundaries work?
    Unit 1: B
    Unit 2: B
    Unit 3: A (84UMS)

    Apparently I can still get an A*?

    You Need and A overall at AS level (80%) and then 90% overall at A2 level to get an A*

    It's a minor success, but it's an improvement on where they were. I'd still say you could argue Nokia's retrenchment as a success.
    their improvement was in the smartphone market where they had and have a small share

    Don't assume that it's unsuccessful - it might take a long time for any Nokia's implemented change to start working. Don't assume that the change will happen overnight!
    haha I know I'm not saying that, but you can't say it's been a success either yet!

    Does anyone know how many UMS marks are needed for a grade B? I think I'm currently on 202 but have retaken unit 3 so hopefully have picked up some more there!

    You can't. To get an A* you need 320UMS or above overall with 90UMS on both A2 units. Sorry to destroy your dreams!

    I guess it depends on how successful something needs to be to be considered as a 'success'... Personally I would say that any action which results in an improvement is a success.

    They withdrew choc. bars with suspicion of salmonella. You could say that they avoided a big health-related scandal, which could've incurred them millions of losses.

    yeah but it still wasn't profitable... I dunno, I reckon you could write it either way and them understand

    Hi I was looking into CSR and I've got something about Lush, Waitrose. But I need more (negative and positive) !
    Is CSR including environment too?

    Hi, I'm wondering if there are any blockages in the exam marking.

    For example in some of my other exams you couldn't get higher than a certain amount of marks If you didn't relate it to the case.

    Is there anything similar to that in this exam?
