technology, what would it look like? It is concerned with focusing, organizing and managing a company around its processes. BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 10 How can companies identify their business process? One way is to give them names that express their beginning and end state. Therefore, it would be better to call: - Manufacturing as the procurement-to-shipment process, -Product development as the concept-toprototype process, - Sales as the prospect-to-order process,

-Order fulfillment as the order-to-payment process BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 11 How can companies identify the processes to reengineer? First, no company can reengineer all its process simultaneously. Second, companies typically use three criteria to help them make their choice: Dysfunction: which processes are in the deepest trouble? Importance: Which processes have the greatest impact on customers? Feasibility: Which processes are the most

susceptible/dispose to redesign? BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 12 Fundamentals of BPR 3- IT: Enablers of redesign business processes: shared database, networking allow integration and coordination. BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 13 IT opportunities in BPR

process would reduce time and space Infoware Monitoring processes and task analyzing information Reduce cost of information BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 14 Fundamentals of BPR

4- Business Change: BPR requires fundamental shift in the way the whole business thinks and works. Change in responsibility and authority distribution from vertical to horizontal lines, empowerment, semiautonomous work groups 5- Change management: knowledge of Organisational behavior BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 15 PBR Where is the Strategic sense in PBR? 1- Reduce cost

2- customer satisfaction 3- improve competitiveness 4- excellent capability advantages BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 16 Processing life insurance application The old way: Long, sequential process involving credit checking, quoting, rating, underwriting/insuring, Work spanned 5 departments & involved 19 people Turnaround/amount time: ranged

from 5 to 25 days BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 17 Processing life insurance application After reengineering: creation of Case managers: total responsibility for an application from receipt to policy issuing Use of expert systems as a support technology When need, assistance from a senior underwriter or physician Turnaround time: on average 2 to 5 days (for some cases less than 4 hours) Increased productivity / empowerment

BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 18 Embarking\applying on reengineering Persuade the people to embrace - or at least not to fight - the prospect of major change by developing the clearest messages on: 1- A Case for action: Here is where we are as a company and this is why we cannot stay here. 2- A Vision statement: This is what we as a company need to become BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009

19 Simple rules to BPR: Start with a clean sheet of paper Listen to your customer Enhance those things that bring value to the customer and change or eliminate those that do not Focus your commitment to radical change on the process BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 20 Organizational implications of

reengineering Work unit change: from functional departments to process teams Job change: from simple tasks to multidimensional work Roles change: from controlled employees to empowered workers Job preparation change: from training to education Managers change: from supervisors to coaches Org. structure change: from hierarchy to flat Values change: from protective to productive (employees work for their customers, not their bosses).

BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 21 Development methodology for BPR 12345678- Develop vision and objectives Identify process for redesign Understand and measure existing process Identify IT levels Pilot\ trial new process Develop supply solution Make new process operational On going continuous improvement BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009

22 Rethinking the Traditional Organization When looking beneath the surface at any company: You will find 3 different businesses: 1- Customer relationship management 2- Product innovation 3- Infrastructure One company three businesses Traditional org. believes the three bus. must be combined within a single company. BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 23

Features of Each business Customer relationship management: The role is to find customer and build relationship with him. Cultural: customer comes first, aims economies of scope by gaining large share of customers wallet. Requires a variety of products. Product innovation: Conceive/consider of attractive of new products and services Cultural: Employee centered. BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 24 Features of Each business

Infrastructure Management: The role is to build and manage facilities for high-volume. Cultural: Cost focused, it stresses on standardization and efficiency. It focuses on the operation. Managers should talk about processes rather than functions. BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 25 If bundling them into single company The result: It forces management to compromise the performance of each process.

Example: Unbundling is making the newspaper business much less capital intensive. Example, banking industry BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 26 ?Why Reengineering sometimes fail Variety of reasons examples: 1- Failure to focus on parts important to customer. 2- Failure to integrate IT. 3- Underestimate the actions required by employees. Managers may assume that the change will

cause employees to shed their functional mind-sets and will forge them instantly into a team aiming to achieve common goals. BPR Prof. Dr Majed El-Farra 2009 27 TQM It emphasizes the role of quality in meeting the needs of its customers. TQM stresses customer satisfaction , continuous improvement and to be the best in all functions. TQM focuses on incremental change and gradual improvement of processes.
