Understanding Scenarios and Consequences in Contingency Planning

A failure in most planning is that it's analytical versus strategic in nature. In systems thinking, an important attribute is to understand consequences.
Managing consequences is more than just mitigating risks -- which is analytical. Consequences are neutral -- its how you handle them.
Understanding scenarios, consequences, are strategic precursors to contingency planning.

I agree with you that in contingency planning it's not primarily about all the details. A good and shared (by the entire management team) understanding of the main strategic scenarios and their potential consequences is probably one of the best forms of preparing for future contingencies.
You can find lot more along these lines in our scenario planning knowledge center.
