The objectives of the research were to explore the awareness of Business Continuity Management among managers and the extent of its uptake by their organisations. It aims to identify changes over time from earlier Institute research. The research points to the main causes of business disruption over the past twelve months and helps managers to share good practice, using the results to improve understanding of Business Continuity issues and improve resilience. In addition, this survey assessed the extent of preparations of a possible influenza pandemic, reflecting widespread concerns at the start of 2006. The research took place in March 2006. The views of 1,150 managers were obtained from a questionnaire sent to a stratified sample of 10,000 individual Institute members by post and by email. Responses were received from managers in all regions and sectors of the UK, all sizes of organisation, and at all levels of management seniority.
