    One thought on “Reengineering the Corporation”

    1. Данная книга входит в список 100 лучших бизнес-книг всех времен по версии издателей бизнес литературы Джека Коверта и Тодда Саттерстена. Обычно книги из данного списка вызывают либо несомненной удовольствие либо же восторг от данных книг, и очень редко достаточное удовлет [...]

    2. This was an excellent book for anyone looking to transform their organization. It is not easy or popular, but reengineering is the vaccine a dying organization needs in order to live. However, it must be the leaders the own the transformation.

    3. I'll be honest with you. It took me a month to power through this book, and I only did so after my boss made me. I always retain book facts well but with this book I remembered just enough to pass off my knowledge in it but a year later I don't remember anything and that says something. Maybe with a better mindset going in i might have liked it more, but probably not lol

    4. - Conceptual book about re-engineering without strong methodology- A lot of ideas are taken from toyota lean (value-stream, value to customer, etc.) but not explained clearly.

    5. Business is all about taking the right risk for profits. Business is run by people and needs processes and guidliness for controls. Business processes needs reengineering based on the organisations vision and appitite. The reengineering the corporation provides key insights on how to redevelop or redesign the business process so that the purpose and value is achieved based on the customer needs. I found the following as the key from the book. Chapter – 1: The reengineering Concept- Reengineeri [...]

    6. Reinženýring: Revoluce, která se nekonala — tak nějak bych pozměnil český podtitul novodobé manažerské klasiky Reengineering the Corporation: A Manifesto for Business Revolution z roku 1993. Tato kniha, která v 90. letech zcela ovládla manažerský diskurs, je dodnes běžně citována jako ukázkový příklad korporátní inovace. Je tomu ale skutečně tak? Ve zkratce, autoři tvrdí, že moderní korporace se musí doslova postavit na hlavu, radikálně přepracovat či přímo [...]

    7. The authors assert that the current circumstances of business in America are not due to factors currently blamed (foreign competition, federal government, etc). The solution is not in automation, management-by-whatever concepts (e.g. TQM), but in totally rethinking a business in terms of whole processes. Reengineering is: "If I were re-creating this company today, given what I know and given current technology, what would it look like?" A business process is a "collection of activities that take [...]

    8. Bruce Rasher, the transition manager for the merger of the DEQ & DNR into the DNRE, cited this book as one of his inspirations. It's worthwhile reading as it explains what reengineering is, what it isn't, common mistakes and cites some success stories from private industries & a utility company. I especially enjoyed reading Chapter 3 where the authors what a reengineered process looks like. This book inspires me to become a change agent, but I have to wonder how successful reengineering [...]

    9. In 1993, when this book was published for the first time, most organizations in America had became inefficient and mammoth proportions monsters, spending ridiculous ammounts of money with useless systems, hardware, offices and any sort of pointless extravagances. The original idea was an easy concept, but the implications (specially in a giant organization) were huge: it was about time to re-think the whole company, and decide what could (and should) be cut. Unfortunatelly, some ideas were misun [...]

    10. I likely wouldn't have picked this book up if it hadn't been required for my MBA coursework; however, this was a fairly quick read for me. As the title suggests, it gives tremendous insight into reengineering of corporations, but supports this concept with strong case studies. The concepts and cases are easily understandable and interesting to those who are business-minded and seek constant improvement opportunities. Overall, I'd recommend it, but this may be a book you'd seek out at the library [...]

    11. This is a good book for someone in a management, director or VP position that is either looking to improve intra-office dynamics or is in a traditional company that is in need of keeping up with the times. It is a more holistic view of running a company. Includes the ideas of: combing several jobs into one, allowing workers to make decisions, performing the steps of a process in a natural order, and recognizing that processes have multiple versions and designing processes to take account of diff [...]

    12. When Information Technology revolutionized the way we worked and lived, businesses were struggling to understand what IT could do for them. Without a change in the business processes, IT could do nothing to add profits to them. Reengineering came into picture just for this reason. This is one of the best books that explained what reengineering was all about and why it was required.

    13. A very good book that describes the difference between continuous process improvement and reengineering (or building a process from scratch).The business examples were useful as were the "reason for failure" chapter. I would love to find a good book on how to build a learning game like the one discussed in the IBM example.

    14. An excellent interesting book. It is a very inspiring story of how corporations transformed themselves to meet the changing demands of the market place. In spite of being released 20 years ago, the book is still useful just a little dated. You will love the book if you are interested in business techniques. I recommend the book for all managers and consultants.

    15. This book should be in the standard curriculum for business students and consultants. Hammer's arguments for a wholesale reorientation in the business world (from task to process organization) make complete sense. But surprisingly, the business world still seems to be stuck in the industrial age.

    16. A simple and quick recipe for how to re-work your cooperate work. Not really fully applicable to all sorts of corporates, yet it gives you a better insight for the big picture.I think its a must read for anyone interested in such topics.

    17. Although required reading always is a downer, this book is acutally interesting. Well written with a good dose of humor, it gives a different spin on the way we think about business. Caution, may induce sleep.

    18. A very good work, but what works for one company many not work for others. The fallacy is that cleaning out the old and in with the new neglects that organizations can't simple reset to zero and all will be well.

    19. This was my pocket reference guide when I ran into major challenges transforming Fortune 500 processes from out of control to simply flowing with improved working climate. Timeless too.Any Michael Hammer book is worth checking out. I have also read Beyond Reengineering.

    20. A should-read book on organizational behavior and design for knowledge workers, managers, executives, and entrepreneurs.

    21. "BPR reached its heyday in the early 1990s when Michael Hammer and James Champy published their best-selling book Reengineering the Corporation."

    22. Outdated management philosophy? Look instead at how Toyota do Lean, the Agile movement or Lean kanban ways to do software development.
