Business Process Reengineering commonly known as BPR is a turn around management tool for any business. This was evolved first in the 1990s. The major aim of the business process reengineering is to analyze and design business processes for an organisation so that customer service is improved, operational cost is reduced, and the organization is prepared to face competition in the world.
The other terms normally used for business process reengineering are business process change management, business transformation, or business process redesign. As this name suggests this process is a total revamp of the processes followed in the business to achieve a better outcome and enhance the business attributes. Thus one can say that business process reengineering is redesigning and rethinking how a business should work so that the organizational goals are achieved with the lowest possible cost.
Through this process, the organization adopts a new system that emphasises customer requirements and needs with a reduction in cost. This can be achieved by redesigning organizational functions and using technology for decision making and data dissemination.
