Process Re-engineering (PR) is the practice of rethinking and redesigning the way work is done to better support an organization’s mission and reduce costs. Organizations re-engineer 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.

Basic questions are asked, such as “Does our mission need to be redefined? Are our strategic goals aligned with our mission? Who are our customers?”
