Business process reengineering is a systemic approach to improving the efficiency of an organization by improvements in (appropriate) processes in such areas as cost, operation, speed, service and quality.

This drastic change process begins at the highest level of a business and goes down to the littlest detail to redesign and overhaul the system in no time.

As a total redesign, PR varies from other processes where gradual improvement comes from frequent process upgrades. Organizations going through PR must re-examine their fundamentals and change their methodology with the aim of standardization and simplification.

Simplify3X reduces the organizational layers and removes activities that are unproductive in two major areas. To start with, we restructure functional organization into cross-functional teams. Then, we improve decision making and data dissemination using technology.

Business process reengineering is a major change initiative that has five key steps which directors should adopt:

  • Refocus the company values on the needs of the client
  • Redesign major core processes mostly making use of information technology to enhance improvement
  • Restructure a business into teams that are cross-functional with start to finish obligation for a process
  • Reconsider the basic organizational & individual issues
  • Improve the business process across the organization

Anticipated Results and Benefits of Business Process Reengineering

Many organizations reduced the number of their workers at the time of the first wave of PR, basically because of the introduction of information technology. The processes that had been reliant on lots of people were re-engineered to require less or even no individuals to perform them. Nowadays, a PR project takes it as given that innovation is essential in the organization, yet it might require improvement or upgrade. The advantages and the result expected on implementing PR is now:

  • Increased efficiency, identifying core functions and any that are obsolete or inefficient
  • Lowered overall cost as well as cycle time
  • Substantial work for workers; the process facilitates more staff involvement
  • Better organization approach; know the business rules from before, reducing process activity time and new product
  • Consolidated business focus
  • Business growth, improving the position of the business with drastic changes
  • Increased customer base
  • Downsized company structure, empowering employees.
