BPR - Enabled Systems Engineering

Johnson, Leslie and Stergiou, Maria (1999) BPR - Enabled Systems Engineering. In: Khoong, Chan Meng, ed. Reengineering in Action: The Quest for World-Class Excellence. Imperial College Press, World Scientific Co. ISBN 1-86094-139-7. (doi:10.1142/9781848160576_0005) (KAR id:21872)


As traditional management techniques were no longer appropriate in the changing business environment, companies employed Business Process Reengineering (BPR) to achieve elevated business performance. Similarly, as traditional systems development approaches delivered disappointing results, system developers experimented with other models, including Evolutionary Delivery and Evolutionary Development, in order to enable successful technology exploitation by businesses. Both these business and systems initiatives embrace elements of cultural change, management flexibility, empowerment, organisational readiness, and technology introduction in a changing environment. We show how the management of a BPR project allows us to integrate Evolutionary Delivery and Evolutionary Development into the organisational transformation project. And by these means, we show how BPR can enable Systems Engineering.
