Business Process Reengineering (BPR)

« Back to Glossary Index

A term coined by Hammer and Davenport in the early Nineties. As originally defined in their books, it emphasized starting with a blank sheet and completely reconceptualizing major business processes and using information technology in order to obtain breakthrough improvements in performance. The term became unpopular in the late Nineties and many business people associate BPR with failures. For many people today, the term has been replaced with the term Business Process Transformation.
