Alternate Methodology for Doing BPR

After identifying, documenting and studying business the processes of the oraganization, you can use any of following 3 approaches for the redesign phase rather than going for the redesigning of all the processes in a single go.
1. Dysfunction: which processes are in the deepest trouble?
2. Importance: which processes have the greatest impact on customers?
3. Feasibility: which processes are the most susceptible to re-design?
If there is no need of redesign then you can go for process improvement (TQM and Kaizen).

Key in BPR is Breakthough Improvement and Drastic Changes

I agree that there are many methods for process improvement. But, BPR expects breakthrough improvement and changes drastically. But the systems like Kaizen and TQM are done in a systematic slow pace and takes longer time for implementation. Kaizen addresses a small improvement only that need not solve a problem but makes some improvement in the process.
