Train in a team how to implement all important controlling and management methods in practice.

The controlling scene is characterized by a variety of revolutions. New challenges with the emergence of digitization, a changed role model in the sense of business partnering and modern organizational structures such as shared service centers are only three offers from a hardly manageable shopping cart of partly overlapping and contradictory controlling developments. Software-Tools, methods have to be implemented and skills adapted. It is important to overcome the hurdles between necessities and practice in day-to-day work.

Your benefits

  • In Stage IV – Planning & Implementation you will learn to apply the skills you have developed in stages I to III in a case study involving two divisions of a real company. In doing so you will gain experience that you can transfer into practice
  • You will update your knowledge about the latest developments in controlling and collaborate with your team of colleagues to analyze your own issues from your everyday controller experience
  • A “self-controlling” in the sense of a continuous improvement process (CIP) of the controller service rounds off the workshop
