This paper reviews the Business Process Reengineering (BPR) vision of radical business process change, focusing upon the use of information technology, to facilitate a shift away from linear work organization towards parallel processing and multidisciplinary team working. To approach such a change, by focusing on the technologies aspect to the detriment of a regard on managerial, technological and human resources management, might however handicap a lot the chances of succeeding of such a project. Organizational structures and human resources management politics indeed shape the positioning of actors facing the change project, and constitute the appropriation context of those technologies.
