Business Process Reengineering (BPR)


Companies that are successful at Business Performance Improvement know how to rapidly and effectively improve everything they do – both incrementally and radically.

Reengineering is the most exciting way to take your business processes apart, and then rapidly put them back together again in a radically different way!

This course is designed to provide participants with the strategies necessary for effective leadership of dramatic improvement of business processes throughout the entire organization. Participants will learn how to design and structure their strategic, value-added business processes to maximize throughput and reduce costs and cycle time.


Held in a workshop format, this course is designed to enable the participants to reengineer the strategic, value-added business processes within their organization.

The focus of this workshop is to achieve rapid and dramatic improvements in how the organization manages its business processes, with a strong emphasis on reduction of overall cycle time, cost, resource and asset utilization.

In sharp contrast to Continuous Improvement courses, this workshop strives to enable participants to completely overhaul and redesign their internal processes and supporting organizational structure.

Since so many reengineering programs fail to achieve the desired outcomes, we will also explore many of the obstacles and pitfalls encountered by reengineering teams, and how to avoid them.

We will explore many of the tools and techniques available for simplifying, standardizing, aligning, synchronizing and achieving rapid and sustainable improvements in business processes.

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
