Workflow process mapping is one of the most important steps in managing workflows. Whether you specifically define them or not, your organization has workflows, because that’s how things get done – how products get made and how services get delivered.

First, we will explain to you what BPR is. The best business process reengineering definition is this.  BPR “encompasses the envisioning of new work strategies, the actual process design activity, and the implementation of the change in all its complex technological, human and organizational dimensions.” – Thomas H Davenport (1993). Also, business process engineering is about creating a new value system and redesigning a workflow. Thus, the engineers have to come up with prototypes, simulations, and tests before they could implement the new value system. Organizations reengineer two key areas of their businesses. First, they use modern technology to enhance data dissemination and decision-making processes. Then, they alter functional organizations to form functional teams.

Global competition is one of the challenges that modern businesses have to deal with. Also, they have to find ways to reduce their overheads while creating new products and services.

With the right workflow management solution, repetitive tasks can be automated, and better collaboration is facilitated.
