UNSPECIFIED (1998) Explaining the paradox of business process reengineering diffusion despite its limited success. In: Information-Resources-Management-Association International Conference, MAY 17-20, 1998, BOSTON, MA.Full text not available from this repository.
The apparent contradiction between the limited success rate of Business Process Reengineering (BPR) and its widespread diffusion among Western firms is explained with reference to research undertaken across four European countries and to the innovation diffusion literature. A model is developed which illustrates the diffusion process associated with BPR. This illustrates the importance of technology suppliers and professional associations as 'fashion setters' in the diffusion process but also suggests their roles differ across national boundaries.
