BPR – when is 'enough' enough?

In a company that is undergoing BPR - how do they know when to stop BPR practice? You cannot keep operating using this approach all the time, can you? And if you wanted to stop after some goals are achieved (maybe we broke even), why would you need to operate in this ‘emergency’ state until you hit the target - say 10kk of profit.

Maybe if we are close to the goal it’s worth stopping this BPR condition and let people work in a stable environment? Hence there is a need of developing and establishing (on time - meaning straight after BPR is ended) a new approach for a new, robust strategy...

reversed BPR – is it possible?

BPR - Business Process Reengineering. Now let's consired it in this way:

What > what's going on > why > what do we want.


BPR > our business is underperforming for quite a long time (panic time) > poor management (INTERNAL cause) > let's redefine the way we work

What about something like this:

??? > our business is doing well > new supplier - really poor quality one! (EXTERNAL cause) > our process is endangered (panic time)

Now if BPR is about going from poor state to a good one, I thought that the second case is BPR but in reverse. Obviously in the second case we'll work to improve but it was interesting for me to see that the cause was an external one and the logical flow was the same in both cases.
