WHAT IS BUSINESS PROCESS REENGINEERING?

Have you noticed how many buzzwords are part of our daily vocabulary?  Buzzwords like out-of-pocket, deep dive, circle back and outside the box.  I use and hear these and others like them all the time.  One buzzword that seems to be making a comeback is Business Process Reengineering (BPR).

What is BPR? 

There are many definitions out there, but Bain & Company has produced some great work on this subject- BPR involves the radical redesign of core business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in productivity, cycle times and quality. In Business Process Reengineering, companies rethink existing processes to deliver more value to the customer. They typically adopt a new value system that places increased emphasis on customer needs. Companies reduce organizational layers and eliminate unproductive activities in two key areas.

  1. Redesign functional organizations into cross-functional teams.
  2. Use technology to improve data dissemination and decision making.

There is an extreme view that ACC does not hold to:

  1. Obliterate what you have now and start from scratch.
  2. Transform every aspect of your organization.

We don’t want to reinvent the wheel. Transformation, yes, not Turmoil.  Starting over can sometimes be necessary, but in most cases we can keep some of the excellent business processes already in place and focus our attention to bottle necks and data redundancies to name a few.

How can ACC help?

We work with companies who are at the crossroads in their businesses.

  1. Have outgrown their internal processes and therefore can’t continue growing.
  2. Are losing customers over lost or delayed orders.
  3. Can’t compete with their competitors due to archaic business practices.

ERP Hierarchy of Needs

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs a psychological concept that people are willing to fulfill basic needs before pursuing higher level needs. This theory was created in 1943 by Abraham Maslow.

Why an ERP System Isn’t “One Size Fits All”

Have you seen the phrase, “One Size Fits All”, marked on different types of clothing? Most items labeled as such usually are very plain and have a standard size to accommodate most.
