Personal Business Process Reengineering?
Pratapsingh Randhawa, Member
Would anyone help me with one doubt here, can the concept of BPR be implemented in anyone’s personal life to have a radical change? Or is BPR specifically for business need only?

Rather PR than BPR? Or even PPR?

Business process reengineering, by the name itself, means only for business. But, in general, Process Reengineering can be applied for any discipline where there is a process (or which could use a process) which I would presume includes personal life also. I believe that the efficiency and survival is the bottom-line for any process reengineering.
In personal life, the individual's and the community's acts are guided by several stated / unstated / derived / perceived processes which always can use some optimization / transformation to align with the ever changing needs. You can call this PPR (Personal Process Reengineering)?

Thank you! Suresh.. I was looking something similar on this query.

PPR = Wonderful!

Very good Mr. Gopal! I totally agree but would like to add the fact that what makes us humans get lost is: the lack of focus, and the lack of connection between vision, goal and strategy.
That is a lack that's comparable between humans and organizations wouldn't you say?

Dear Mr Pratapsingh Randhawa, your question "Can the concept of BPR be implemented in private life?" has been intriguing me for many years.
Meanwhile I have developed a methodology, including supporting techniques and tools, which I coined “Personal Process Reengineering” or “Personal Process Optimization”. I have been using this approach to make my private/professional life richer and more satisfying, with, if I may say so, good results. Furthermore I have set up activities to share my experience with managers/knowledge workers.
I would be my pleasure to exchange ideas with you on this topic.
