"Business reengineering is the fundamental rethinking and radical redesign of an entire 'business system'-the business processes, jobs, organizational structures, management systems, and values and beliefs-to achieve dramatic improvements in critical measures of performance." [Michael Hammer, James Champy Reengineering the Corporation]. Compared to BPI, achieves dramatic improvements changing the current framework, radical redesign of business processes is focused on the end-to-end process and impacts the entire business process; focuses on redefining process(es) to improve outcome(s). "The essence of reengineering, as I see it, is first hooking functions together horizontally rather than vertically; and, second, reinventing the organization as you go horizontal in order to take 24 steps out of a 25 step process." [Tom Peters].
