Q1) Business Process Re-engineering (BPR) transforms the way organizations carry out their processes and substantially provides them with gains. This can be seen in many cases such as Hallmark Cards, Taco Bell, Capital Holding, and Bell Atlantic to name a few. Hallmark used the theories of BPR to redefine the process of launching new card ideas in the market. Their existing product cycle time was three years, whereas their management wanted to reduce it to one year, keeping the level of market dynamism in mind. Much to their surprise, Hallmark’s management realized that most of the time taken to produce a card was spent on designing it. Idea development consumed the most time, manpower efforts and money, contrary to management’s belief that printing and production rework consumed most time period. To address the issues of wasted time and to spur creativity, the company grouped together people who previously had been separated by disciplines, departments, floors, even buildings. The upshot: Hallmark's integrated teams of artists, writers, marketers, and production people pushed new lines out within a year.
