Business Process Management (BPM)
Focusing on the Fulfillment of the Corporate Mission
Important improvements in the ranges of costs, quality, service and processing times – as tempting as these goals are, their fulfillment is just as hard. Business Process Reengineering (BPR) stands for fundamental reconsideration and radical reorganization of the core business processes of a company or business sectors. Always in the focus: The customer and his needs. In practice, the realization of both aspects challenges many of those in charge.
If one takes a closer look on successful BPR projects, cost savings are often “only” a wanted side effect. The main motivation in fact is to optimally fulfill the corporate mission. This is true for both companies in the economy and for public organizations. To achieve the fulfillment of corporate missions, BPR aims to create a system of linked business processes, which is effectively supported by organizational rules and information technologies.
