1. Xiang, Junlian. Business Process Redesign Project Implementation and Outcomes - A Proposed Model and Its Validation.

Degree: PhD, 2010, McMaster University

Business process redesign (BPR) has been studied extensively since its initial widespread application in the late 1980s. Although a great deal has been learned by both practitioners and researchers about the best ways to use BPR for business process improvement, the overall failure rate of BPR projects is still reported to be high. This failure rate indicates that there is still a need for a comprehensive success factor model, validated with empirical evidence, to provide direction to practitioners that will help to improve the outcomes of business process redesign projects. Up to this point, few studies have identified and empirically tested the possible facilitators of BPR project success. This is an exploratory study, where Social-Technical Theory was applied in the context of BPR project implementation to explain the impact of success factors on BPR project success. The proposed conceptual research model includes the following factors: BPR project champion, top management support, change management, process redesign, and Information and Communication Technology Infrastructure (ICTI) improvement. The model considers critical factors from both the social and technical aspects of BPR project practices and the relationships among them. Facets of BPR project outcomes, including operational quality improvement, organizational quality improvement, cost savings, and productivity, were also examined. A survey of 145 managers and executives from medium and large-sized companies was used to validate the model. The results show that a BPR project champion is a critical success factor for BPR project success, mediated through top management support, and that top management support must be emphasized through the whole BPR project implementation procedure. More specifically, change management has a better likelihood of success if it is strongly supported by top management, while other factors play an important role in helping to encourage process redesign and ICTI improvements. This study also shows that three BPR project implementation components: change management, process redesign, and information and communications technology infrastructure (ICTI) improvement, are all critical to BPR project success. However, change management occupies the most important position because it impacts significantly the success of all four facets of BPR project outcomes (operational quality improvement, organizational quality improvement, cost savings, and productivity). Among these outcomes, the study showed that productivity is no longer the top focus of companies; instead, operational quality and organizational quality have become more important. This study makes a significant contribution to both theory and practice. The establishment of a BPR project implementation model based on socio-technical theory, and the development of new instruments for change management and process redesign, provide a foundation for future BPR project research. With respect to practice,… Advisors/Committee Members: Archer, Norm, Business Administration.

2. Stojanović, Dragana, 1979-. Model za selekciju poslovnih procesa i metodologija njihovog poboljšanja.

Degree: Fakultet organizacionih nauka, 2016, Univerzitet u Beogradu

Tehnicke nauke - Industrijsko i menadžment inženjerstvo / Technical Sciences - Industrial and management engineering

Predmet istraživanja je razvoj i provera modela koji ce omoguciti formalizaciju integrisanog postupka selekcije poslovnih procesa koji su prioritetni za poboljšanje i izbora metodologija koje ce ih efikasno poboljšati. Cilj istraživanja je utvrivanje veze izmeu nacina selekcije poslovnih procesa i izbora metodologije njihovog poboljšanja i uspešnosti projekata poboljšanja i usvajanja upravljanja poslovnim procesima u organizaciji, kao i razvoj autenticnog integrisanog pristupa selekciji poslovnih procesa i izboru metodologija njihovog poboljšanja. Pregledom literature, uoceno je da nauci i praksi upravljanja i poboljšanja poslovnih procesa nedostaje jedan formalizovani koncept koji ce biti integrisan i sadržati kompletnu instrukciju i za selekciju poslovnih procesa i za izbor metodologija njihovog poboljšanja. Što se tice selekcije i prioritetizacije poslovnih procesa, neophodno je formirati jedinstveni skup kriterijuma za ocenu, kao i definisati nacin ocenivanja procesa i znacenje svake ocene. Kod izbora metodologija neophodno je utvrditi koje metodologije su alternative, koji su kriterijumi za izbor i kako se vrši ocena i konacan izbor. U doktorskoj disertaciji sprovedena su dva empirijska istraživanja i uraene su razlicite statisticke analize. Prvo istraživanje sprovedeno je u preduzecima u Srbiji 2012. i 2014. godine. U istraživanju se koristio upitnik sa tvrdnjama o praksi poboljšanja i upravljanja poslovnim procesima. Pitanja i tvrdnje iz upitnika su omogucile da se utvrde razliciti nacini selekcije poslovnih procesa i izbora metodologija njihovog poboljšanja, uspešnost projekata poboljšanja poslovnih procesa, kao i mera usvajanja upravljanja poslovnim procesima u organizacijama (Indeks performansi procesa). Rezultati istraživanja su pokazali da organizacije koje nemaju formalizovan nacin selekcije poslovnih procesa i izbora metodologija poboljšanja poslovnih procesa imaju manju uspešnost poboljšanja poslovnih procesa u odnosu na organizacije koje imaju u odreenoj meri formalizovan navedeni postupak. Utvreno je i da postoji pozitivna korelacija izmeu stepena formalizacije selekcije poslovnih procesa i izbora metodologija njihovog poboljšanja i uspešnosti poboljšanja poslovnim procesima. Takoe je potvreno da organizacije koje nemaju formalizovan nacin selekcije poslovnih procesa i izbora metodologija njihovog poboljšanja imaju manju uspešnost usvajanja upravljanja poslovnim procesima u odnosu na organizacije koje imaju u odreenoj meri formalizovan navedeni postupak. Utvreno je i da postoji pozitivna korelacija izmeu stepena formalizacije selekcije poslovnih procesa i izbora metodologija njihovog poboljšanja i uspešnosti usvajanja upravljanja poslovnim procesima. Na taj nacin je potvreno da postoji povezanost izmeu nacina selekcije poslovnih procesa i izbora metodologije njihovog poboljšanja i uspešnosti projekata poboljšanja i usvajanja upravljanja poslovnim procesima u organizaciji...

3. Vorster, Adriana. The implementation of virtual teams : a theoretical framework / Adriana Vorster .

Degree: 2003, North-West University

The impact of globalisation and advanced information technology on service and knowledgebased industries in South Africa contributes to these workplaces becoming increasingly virtual. Virtual teams can be seen as a mechanism that organisations could use to increase their orientation for change through enhancing and integrating key organisational resources such as people, space and information technology to deliver greater business value. The findings of several studies suggest that the implementation of virtual teams is associated with benefits such as cost and time saving, increased employee productivity and employee empowerment. There are however salient barriers to effective virtual teamwork that organisations need to address before engaging in the transformational process towards virtual teamwork. The literature review identified ineffective leadership practices, factors relating to virtual team development, inadequate use of information technology and a paucity of social and organisational cultural integration, as the most salient features that impede effective virtual teamwork. The objective of this research was to develop a basic theoretical framework for the implementation of virtual teams. Since virtual teams emanate from a relatively new area of research an inductive methodology, based on a literature review, was used to achieve the research objective. Several theoretical models on virtual teams and their effectiveness thereon were explored to conceptualise the dynamic nature of virtual teams and the requirements for implementing them in the workplace. The results of the study indicated that an emergent approach to change be followed and that the following factors be addressed to determine an organisation's readiness for the implementation of virtual teams, namely: the degree of interdependence between tasks, structural requirements, technological requirements, process redesign and the selection of appropriate people. A methodology for work transformation towards virtual teamwork was suggested based on an integration of these factors.
