    • Business Process Re-engineering is :

    • - Hammer & Champy
  • 17.
    • Business Process Re-design is :
    • “ the analysis and design of workflows and processes within and between organizations “
    Business Process Re-design
  • 18. Fundamental Rethinking
    • Why do we do what we do?
    • Why do we do it the way we do?
    • Re-engineering first determines what a company must do, then how to do it
    • It takes nothing for granted
    • It ignores what is and concentrates on what should be
  • 19.
    • It means getting to the root of things
    • It means starting all over again and isn’t about fixing things
    • It is low in cost with problem at the design stage rather than at the execution stage
    • It means enabling new or existing processes using IT
    Radical Redesign
  • 20.
    • BPR is an integrated program of change which has a major impact on an organization for several reasons:
      • Sponsored by senior management
      • Driven from the top down. Begins and ends with customer value
      • Applies to multiple business functions, departments and locations
      • Involves cultural, organizational and role changes that must be managed
      • Radical improvements will take place
    BPR & Change

Fix if broken Automate process Outdated processes reinforced - no radical improvement Understand current situation and future vision of the enterprise Invent new ways of working & design new process. Use IT to enable change Conventional: Automate existing process Clearly defined processes integrated to meet customer needs and add value
