Accounting with SAP R/3
The Principles of BPR form the foundation for achieving dramatic mission performance gains from multiple customer and stakeholder perspectives. These principles include :
Top management must be supportive of and engaged in reengineering efforts to remove barriers and drive success
An organization's culture must be receptive to reengineering goals and principles
Major improvements and savings are realized by focusing on the business from a process rather than a functional perspective
Processes should be selected for reengineering based on a clear notion of customer needs, anticipated benefits, and potential for success
Process owners should manage reengineering projects with teams that are cross-functional, maintain a proper scope, focus on customer metrics, and enforce implementation timelines.
