Abstract

The study examined the effect of Business Process Reengineering (BPR) resources on the performance of brewing firms in Nigeria. Following the Kassahun (2012) BPR perspectives, the study grouped BPR resources into financial, human and technological resources. A sample of 746 employees was randomly selected from a population of 3500 from five brewing firms quoted in the Nigerian stock exchange. The Likert-type instrument of five-point scale used for data collection has a Cronbach alpha coefficient of 0.85. The percentage frequency was used to examine the baseline information of BPR variables in brewing firms in Nigeria while OLS regression model analysed the effect of BPR on the performance of brewing firms in Nigeria. The study results showed that financial and technological resources were in adequate usage while human resources were moderate. Also, the performance of brewing firms in Nigeria at present is scored high in the five-point rating. The regression result indicated that BPR resources have 94% significant effect on the performance in brewing firms in Nigeria. Specifically, a positive influence was established such that financial resources (63%) has more influence, followed by human resources (20%) and then technological (19%).  This implies that the use of resources is a veritable strategy to enhancing firm performance. Firms that follow the present wave of technological innovations will enhance their competiveness and survival rate. The study therefore concluded that BPR is a veritable tool to enhancing employee satisfaction, team work and cooperation, quality of service delivery as well as attainment of organizational strategic goals in brewing firms in Nigeria. The study however, recommended that firms in the brewing industry and other allied manufacturing firms should employ its resources in an adequately proportionate manner.
