Business Process Reengineering is taken up by companies mainly for two reasons:
1. Reduce costs and cycle times.
Business Process Reengineering reduces costs and cycle times by eliminating unproductive activities and the employees who perform them
2. Improve quality.
Business Process Reengineering improves quality by reducing the fragmentation of work and establishing clear ownership of processes.
Business Process Reengineering (BPR) involves the radical redesign of core business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in productivity, cycle times and quality. BPR normally start on a blank platform and redefine the existing processes to deliver more value to the customer. The main focus and emphasis will be on how to add more value to customer needs. Companies reduce organizational layers and eliminate unproductive activities by redesigning functional organizations into cross-functional teams and use technology to improve data dissemination and decision making.
How Business Process Reengineering works:
Business Process Reengineering is a dramatic change initiative that contains five major steps that include:
- Refocus company values on customer needs.
- Redesign core processes, often using information technology to enable improvements.
- Reorganize a business into cross-functional teams with end-to-end responsibility for a process
- Rethink basic organizational and people issues.
- Improve business processes across the organization
