Over ninety percent of U.S. companies are involved in reengineering, according to a recent survey. Yet while reengineering has been very successful for some, it has also caused major disruptions for others.

A generic road map for reengineering encompasses four phases: positioning the project team for change; diagnosing the existing process; redesigning the process; and making the transition.
