Description of Business Process Reeingineering
Business Process Reengineering (BPR) requires that companies refocus their efforts on serving customer needs. Armed with a deep understanding of the company’s target customers, BPR allows the company to examine the state of its operations, its underlying assumptions, and identify ways to eliminate inefficiencies in activities in order to increase quality, production time, and value for the customer. Common mechanisms for creating greater operational efficiency through BPR include adopting new technologies that streamline business processes, creating cross-functional structures that increase communication and accountability, and putting the right people in the right roles to execute effectively.
