  4. 4. Definition<br />Reengineering is the fundamental rethinking and radical redesign of business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in critical, contemporary measures of performance, such as cost, quality, service, and speed.<br />4<br />
  5. 5. 5<br />What to reengineer?<br />BPR changes processes, and <br />not <br />functions, departments, geographies or tasks.<br />
  6. 6. What it is not?<br />Reengineering is not reorganizing. <br />Modifying how an organization is structured and redesigning an organization’s business processes are two different things.<br />An organizational structure should be designed so that it best supports redesigned business processes.<br />Reengineering is not downsizing either.<br />Downsizing focuses on the reduction of workforce to achieve short-term cost savings. <br />Reengineering, on the other hand, focuses on rethinking from the ground up, finding more efficient ways of working including eliminating work that is unnecessary.<br />6<br />

But at one time their business was also in trouble. <br />This situation arises because of three main reasons. They are,<br />a) The Assembly line model of production, where customer waited in line for delivery <br />b) Competition within the country is very low.<br />c) Global competition was largely non-existent.<br />To recover from this situation, FORD changed from their ProductionSupremacy to Supplier primacy, when the Model T Ford released in the market. <br />Henry Ford said “I will give the customer any color of car he wants – so long as it’s black.”<br />14<br />

  18. 18. JAPANESE PARADIGM<br />US adopted the Japanese paradigm because of :<br />They recognized that economy of scale is not as important as economy of time. So, the entire approach was to be flexible and respond quickly to changing customer needs.<br />They opted for flexibility and multi- skilling techniques in work culture and this created the ability to respond. i.e. discard old and narrow focused to new innovations in work.<br />Customer’s response become the primary objective rather than the growth alone.<br />16<br />
