Authors: Addai, Agnes

Abstract: The provision of better transportation and communication facilities in the urban and rural areas will contribute positively to massive road development and maintenance programmes which will improve the road safety in Ghana. The CSIR-Building and Road Research Institute aspires to provide innovative and simple housing designs that make use of durable, locally available building materials such as clay burnt bricks, pozzolana cement, clay roofing tiles, bamboo, compressed earth blocks and other clay products to support the nation’s efforts in solving the acute shelter problems. The study therefore seeks to identify some various reengineering activities, challenges and find out the effects of these activities on the performance of CSIR – BRRI and finally indicate how best it can monitor and evaluate its research projects and activities to enable an effective and increased output to better manage their systems. A descriptive study was used which means the information was collected without manipulating the environment (or changing the environment), whilst data was collected from both primary and secondary sources. Primary sources semi- structured questionnaires and interview schedules. Using purposive and quota sampling techniques, a sample size of 30 was selected for the study from a population of fifty (50). From the study some problems were identified such as change management technological competence and BPR project management as the most severs in order of importance. These thus represents that there is limited attention in the management of the Institute and that there is no established mechanism that seeks to check and monitor its activities for successful problem free projects managements. It thus recommend an increased number of technical staff, establishment of a functional monitoring and evaluation section, building of a strong communication and contact ties with firms and individuals both local and international. It finally measures BPR project success based on the perceptions of top management about the extent of BPR achievement in relation to plan/goal (that is, ratio of achieved/planned objective measures for cost reduction, cycle time reduction, customer satisfaction increment, productivity increment and defects reduction.
