Business Process Reengineering

Overview:

This is a step-by-step approach  for BPR Implementation in your Department or Organization. This is a unique program providing very useful analysis and improvement skills for Organization/Department Reorganization.

The program covers three distinctly different management approaches to change.

These are:

  • Process Improvement.
  • Process Redesign and Process Re-engineering. 

Need for this program arises from the growing need to meet customer expectations better than our competitors. The steady improvement of products and services - though an important methodology -  is no longer sufficient to survive in the global market-place. The need may be for a radical change in the way we work and  Business Process Re-engineering (BPR) methodology can help organizations decide if such a approach is necessary and how to make that change.

The growth of BPR has been so rapid and experience so diverse that there is confusion as to what the term covers - this program clarifies the terms. In reality, BPR is the common-sense result of management making use of the new tools of information and other technologies.

WORKSHOP CONTENT:

  • What is Reengineering Really?

    • Assessment.
  • The Misconceptions about Reengineering. The Resistance:  Reengineering doesn’t work. Reengineering is nothing new. Reengineering’s not sufficiently radical. Reengineering’s dangerous and Inhumane. We’re different. We can’t afford it. We’ve been doing it for years. Reengineering’s just another name for downsizing, and downsizing doesn’t work. Reengineering is not for growth. Reengineering is just common sense.

Differences between Improvement, Redesign and Re-engineering:

Process redesign is a natural evolution of TQM. It uses many of the traditional techniques of Organisation and Method (O M) and Work Study. It differs from earlier approaches in its degree of customer focus and its use of the opportunities available from the development of information technology.

Business Process Re-engineering: Is defined as a ‘fundamental rethink and radical redesign of business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in critical contemporary measures of performance, such as cost, quality, service and speed.

The approach is based on the premise that continuous incremental improvement is not capable of meeting the challenge of the global market-place. To succeed, companies need major breakthroughs in performance and to leapfrog their competitors. BPR aims for dramatic improvements, not small steps to achieve slow and steady progress. Rather than 10 percent improvements, BPR expects to cut product development cycles by 50 per cent, to cut order to delivery times from a month to one day and take 60 percent to 80 percent out of costs, while at the same time improving service levels. That is dramatic change.

The Benefits of Implementing this Program Approach:

The potential benefits of  are enormous. They are not easy to achieve, but there is substantial evidence that it can be effective.

Re-engineering At An Insurance Company:

  • Administration costs down by 40 percent.
  • Staff turnover down by 58 percent.
  • Claims settlements down by 5 percent.
  • New business applications up by 20 percent.
  • Claims handling time down from 28 days to four days.
  • Customer call-backs down 80 percent.

In the manufacturing arena equally dramatic results have been achieved:

  • Order cycle time down from 33 days to three days.
  • Product development time reduced from 48 months to 10 months.
  • Productivity increased by 60 per cent.
  • These claims are so great that it would be folly to ignore them.
