A rapid cascade of events

From a post by Richard Fernandez that has absolutely nothing to do with presentations but everything to do with the way things often go wrong:

Once the overall design margin of a system has been eroded, failure when it comes manifests itself in a rapid cascade of events. The hidden stresses suddenly pile on each other and the structure, riddled with hundreds of weaknesses each minor in itself, collapses under their simultaneous impact.

Planning is a methodical way

“Planning is a methodical way to think through the entire life cycle of a potential crisis. Good planning repays the investment of time and effort in development and rehearsal by shortening the time required to gain control over an incident and by providing favorable conditions for rapid and effective exchange of information about a situation, its analysis, and alternative responses.”
