We all know that research is actually the process of taking a path that is unknown and unforeseen so we must prepare our mind for rejection and accept rejection as part of the process. When we work with this mind set everything became easy to handle because we make everything “foreseeable” and anticipate worst scenarios. We need to design a conflict  mitigation plan. For instance, in an event of strike what immediate actions should the participant take? Who should participants call, how should they protect themselves etc, What actions should the staff take, security doors must be lock at all times, who should they call, who should be reported to, what changes need to be instituted in recruitment/follow up, who should draft press briefing materials, who should address the media etc. It is the confusion associated with crisis management that have huge negative impact on trials.
