The illustration above shows how a good complaint handling and Alternative dispute resolution process avert litigation and costs. The alternative of waiting until a complaint hits the business which could escalate into a dispute and litigation is a very real danger. It is an opportunity costs; either the business pays Lawyers hefty fees and utilise precious time to litigate cases (which normally lasts for several years) or robust complaint handling and ADR processes in place which ends in months or sometimes, even weeks.
