International Work Group

come together, work together, learn together, develop together

We have build an international, english speaking ICV-work group that is open to experienced controllers and consultants from all countries.


Edyta Szarska,
head of the ICV int. work group invites you to attend...

Target members: 
ICV members (exclusively) with at least 5 years of professional experience as controllers, and consultants, as both groups are seen as (internal) advisers in the company. Controllers should increasingly work as internal consultants in the company. This is to be professionalised in the work group.

Area of focus: 
Every year one company (target company) will be analysed in order to provide the target company with ideas, suggestions and proposals (but not end-to-end management consultancy) for modern management in all areas of the company.

Here you can download our 2020 booklet, containing all aspects of our work group.

2020: Due to Corona-times we have no chance to meet this spring with our partner PS fashion. So we have delayed this target company to 2021!
But we are working: All members of the international work group will take part in one of our 4 teams discussing what we will have learned from this pandemie. If you want to join please send a short mail to Editha Szarska!

2021: The members of the ICV international work group are proud and happy to go in April 2021 to Čačak, Serbia to learn to know P.S. fashion, discussing tasks - and in november 2021 we will bring in ideas, suggestions to improve P.S. fashions business.

Our experiences in the last years:

2019 TUSGsal, Badalona, Spain

We have worked in Badalona near Barcelona for the public transport company TUSGsal.
More information about our meetings here: Experience 2019
and there: Badalona on youtube

We worked on the following topics:

1.   Clearing responsibilities
2.   Improving project management
3.   Winning tenders
4.   Learning by "One-Page-Only" reporting for the future

Mr. Carlos Fabregas, CEO of TUSGsal asserted:
“Throughout 2019 our company TUSGSAL has carried out a collaboration with ICV (International Association of Controllers) that has given us the great opportunity to have a broad external vision focused on four main axes of the management of … our company. A vision reinforced by a large group of professionals from different countries, cultures, professions and experiences….

What has surprised us most is the effectiveness and efficiency in decision making and work performance, the simplicity of the proposed actions…

In conclusion, the project itself has been a great experience that gives us value in its proposals and its subsequent implementation, but the great lesson has been an effective and efficient teamwork, united by common sense and consensus on proposals. simple but enormously useful despite distance, culture, etc..”

 

2018 AutoDOC, Berlin, Germany

Our target company for 2018 has been based in Berlin: AutoDOC with units in Berlin and Szczecin, a reseller of car components. AutoDOC is a 10 years old very successful start-up, growing extremely fast, always with profits...
We had four topics for our mixed teams:
1. B2B
2. Logistics
3. Controlling
4. Purchases
In the end we have got the following conclusion:

"It was an inspiring and extremely collegial collaboration with the ICV's international working group, which resulted in numerous valuable pointers for the further development of our strategy, processes and our controlling systems."

 2017 MDM, Lubljana, Slovenia

In 2017 we have been in Slovenia: MDM d.o.o from Ljubljana Slovenia, more you can see at  www.mdm.si  MDM is a family business with 130 employees.

There we have discussed the following topics:
1.  Ideas to change company’s culture
2.  Bring awareness to the people (cleanliness, speed, working-capital, client-orientation)
3.  Excellence in performance / processes
4.  Cross-communication inside the company

"The purpose to connect with ICV was mainly control the departments financially, in a mathematical way. But immediately we figured out
importance of traditional values, leadership, relationship and emotional intelligence - so figures became as a consequences due to a proper execution of mentioned four facts. Thank you Walter and all the ICV team."

 2016 LUG, Zielona Góra, Poland

In 2016 we have worked in and for LUG, a light-system company in Zielona Góra, Poland.

3.  motivational system
4.  New organisation with better information / controlling

 We know: you don´t solve our problems. But you gave us a new view how to manage our company.  And this is very important for us. And what is the most impoprtant: That we change our company from a executor strategy to a responsibility strategy...“
