What tasks do controllers have?
This video by the Institute of Management Accounting and Control (headed by Professor Dr. Utz Schäffer and Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. Jürgen Weber) of WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management illustrates which tasks controllers fulfill. They inform, plan, control, and advise. How they do this – whether they constrain, unburden or complement – depends on the skills of the individual manager they are supporting.
