What is the course about?

Course Summary

The adequate supply of information for decision-makers (e.g. board members, supervisory board members, division, department and team leaders) is crucial for entrepreneurial success.

Due to a fast changing environment, higher insecurity and higher competition increases the pressure on companies. Further is the quality of the information baseline for managers and executives shrinking.

Based on that initial situation the course outlines and structures the basic challenges and assumptions for companies in the field of Controlling. 

Based on that fundament the Objectification orientated Controlling approach is shown.

The central objective is it to provide decision-makers with an objectified scope of information, that business decisions can be made in a qualified manner. 

Course Elements

The course offers you high quality teaching videos (ca. 3 hours), several quizzes to test your knowledge and a range of further reading and additional materials.

Upon completion of this course, you will receive a statement of participation.
