The Fundamentals of Business Process Reengineering


Business Processing Reengineering (BPR), as defined by Michael Hammer, is the essential re-thinking and radical redesign of business processes to bring about dramatic improvements in critical, contemporary measures of performance, such as cost, quality, service and speed. BPR advocates that organisations return to the basics and reexamine their very roots and aim for total reinvention. BPR redesigns strategic and value-added processes that transcend organisational boundaries.

This 2-day workshop is designed for participants to learn why BPR is in demand, when to and when not to use BPR and more importantly, how to do it effectively and successfully. Beyond just theory, one will benefit from rich class notes and the sharing of real-life scenarios,tips and techniques to help you avoid the many pitfalls of BPR and how to overcome the many challenges when implementing it.


At the end of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Understand what is Business Process Reengineering
  • Analyse and select processes for reengineering
  • Apply tools and techniques towards reengineering goals
  • Overcome challenges encountered in implementation
