Process Redesign is a significant reworking of a Process that (optimally) yields significant, measurable improvement in Output.

Process Redesign is best described as “wiping the slate clean” to allow for more creative, sweeping changes.

Reengineering is an even more significant variant of Process Redesign, sometimes increasing the scope to include the reworking of the entire business (as opposed to a process).
