Business process reengineering is the development of the future state of business processes. The reengineering effort is preceded by the review of the current state (business process review), and the education of the project team on business processes.
Optimizing the Business Process Reengineering Process
Ultra guides its clients through this process because the future state definition drives:
- The identification and evaluation of ERP vendors
- Business case for change
- Design for the implementation of a new ERP system
- Design for a Business Intelligence system
- Improvement of business improvement
- Improvement of business performance
After the team is education on business process best practices, Ultra Consultants facilitate a workshop to develop the future state. Workshops are organized by functional areas. The team reviews the problems in the current state, best practices for the business process, and designs a new business process that eliminates waste and improves productivity.
As the design of the future state becomes clear, the team is asked to define the benefits of the future state. From this information Ultra guides management and the team through the development of the business case for change.
