Describes how a group of organizations (consultants, companies and universities) in Houston, Texas, USA created an informal yet organized forum for sharing information, case studies, tools, and methodologies in the area of business process re‐engineering (BPR) to learn from one another’s experiences and to avoid pitfalls in their BPR endeavours. The forum is named “Houston Business Process Re‐engineering Share Group”. Acts as a road‐map for practitioners and academicians who want to establish similar share groups to increase interaction and improve their understanding of principles and methodologies of BPR. Within 40 months of its startup with 24 members, the Houston BPR Share Group membership increased to over 200 ‐ an indication of its utility and the benefits to the participating organizations.
