Book Description

2 Feb 1995
This work is on the most important topic in business circles today - the radical redesign of a company's processes, organization and culture to achieve a quantum leap in performance. Adam Smith work broke down into specialized tasks. Hammer and Champy explain that instead of tinkering with - or simply computerizing - an aspect of the work design, the answer is to radically redesign the whole process. Business re-engineering isn't about fixing anything - it's about starting again, about reinventing the nature of work and corporate structures from top to bottom. This book shows how some of the world's premier corporations are re-engineering to save hundreds of millions of dollars a year, achieve unprecedented levels of customer satistfaction, and speed up and make more flexible all aspects of their operations. Re-engineering is the 90s what strategy was for the 70s and quality was for the 80s. After a decade of restructuring and downsizing, of cutting costs and capacity, managers need to rethink boldly to yield the dramatic improvements for companies, both big and small, to compete successfully in a changing world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Summary of the Benefits of Fresh Thinking 8 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This book's subject is a popularized version of the business concept of management process design. Making that concept more accessible is a very useful contribution. The downside of this book is that many people have assumed that it teaches you everything you need to know to do management process design, or to reengineer key processes. That, alas, is not true. If you find the subject of process design or reengineering to be of interest, I suggest that you first read James Champy's excellent book, REEENGINEERING MANAGEMENT. That book is a good template for how to make any beneficial change in an organization, including reengineering. Then, if you want to get fired up to make major changes, use REENGINEERING THE CORPORATION as a way to create passion about the subject for yourself. But do remember, you may not even have all the processes you need, so reengineering is not the only answer. For example, what is the management process that your company uses to improve its stock market valuation? If you are like most, you do not even have an effective process for stock price enhancement. So be sure to see if you have processes where they will do you the most good.
