Surveys were conducted on two different groups following the March 11, 2011, Great East Japan Earthquake. One was a group of small and medium sized enterprises and the other was a group that included small to large and global companies. The two groups were different in disaster preparedness and business continuity plan (BCP) implementation status. The extent of damage and disruption were also analyzed if business continuity plans functioned as planned during the earthquake. The two groups were compared and analyzed to identify factors that significantly affected business continuity plan implementation into corporations.
