Home » Cloud BPM » Instances Where Process Reengineering Should NOT Be Undertaken


Process reengineering, or the radical redesign of business processes, is a vital tool for companies seeking to improve efficiency, productivity, and overall performance. However, it’s not always the best solution. There are certain instances where process reengineering should not be undertaken. In this article, we will discuss those instances and offer a better alternative: business process automation (BPM), a specialty of Flokzu.

High-Level of Uncertainty

When a company is in a state of high uncertainty, such as during a merger or acquisition, undertaking a process reengineering can add to the chaos and confusion. In such instances, it is more beneficial to stabilize the environment before considering any major process changes.

Lack of Organizational Readiness

Process reengineering requires a high level of organizational readiness and commitment. If a company lacks the necessary resources, or if there is widespread resistance to change, then the reengineering process is likely to fail. It is better to foster a culture of continuous improvement and readiness first.

Unrealistic Expectations

The process of reengineering is not a magic bullet. It is not a solution for all business problems, and it cannot turn a failing company into a successful one overnight. If a company has unrealistic expectations about what process reengineering can achieve, it should not be undertaken.

Business Process Automation as an Alternative

When process reengineering is not the right path, business process automation (BPM) can often be a more effective solution. BPM involves automating routine tasks, which can significantly improve efficiency and productivity. It is less disruptive than process reengineering, making it a great choice for companies that are not ready for a major overhaul.
