Radical Process Redesign (RPR)

What is Radical Process Redesign (RPR)?
Radical Process Redesign (RPR) is designed to achieve breakthrough improvements in the performance of a business process in a short time.
RPR focuses on those processes that have a major impact on the financial results of the organization Processes that are critical for the strategic direction and competitiveness of the firm.

Main differences between RPR and other approaches:
It changes the process radically. This radical change is the result of identifying and challenging the basic assumptions that explain the current! process. Once those assumptions are reviewed, a totally new process can be designed.
It produces break-through improvements in performance while other approaches produce only incremental improvements.
It uses a macro view of the process while other approaches use a detailed view. There is no sense in detailing a process that will be changed radically. This is one of the reasons why RPR takes less time.

How is RPR implemented?
RPR is usually applied through a high level team that combines strong business and technical backgrounds.
RPR is a highly demanding intellectual process.
RPR is not a bottom-up approach that can be used to foster participation and employee empowerment.
The focus of RPR is results: breakthrough improvements in a short period of time.

How much time to apply RPR?
Usually six months to complete the detailed design.
The time for implementation varies with the scope and complexity of the project.

Investments required to implement RPR:
The investments required by RPR are comparatively smaller than other approaches, mainly because only a small team participates and during a short time.
The investment required for implementation will again depend on the nature of what is being implemented.
The cash flow requirements tend to be low for these projects because technology, which can be financed, is often a strong component of the investment.
Radical redesign often involves disinvestment of assets. These assets can help to finance the project.
