Invitation to participation at the ICV Controlling Excellence Award 2022

Dear Sir or Madame,

As every year, we also present the Controlling Excellence Award in 2021. We hope to be able to do this again as part of our traditional congress in Munich, and therefore invite you to the 46th ICV Congress of Controllers on May 9/10, 2022..

Regardless of whether we meet on site in Munich in 2022 or at an online event, we’re looking forward to hearing from you: Have you implemented a controlling project that you would like to present to our Jury and, if nominated, also to ours controlling community, then apply by January 31, 2022. The winning team can also expect 3,000 euros in prize money and is in good company: The winners of recent years include companies such as Unitymedia, Bosch, Edeka, Covestro, RWE, ElitePartner, Lufthansa, the Otto Group, McDonald’s and the die Bundesagentur für Arbeit [Federal Employment Agency]. But don't worry: It's not the company name that counts, but what solution you develop, what you have achieved for your company as a controller or controlling team. Surprise us, inspire us, take us with your application on your journey from the idea to the destination!

Face the competition and the expert judgment of our Jury, with practitioners and professors. Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Utz Schäffer (as successor to Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Jürgen Weber) the Jury members are Prof. Dr. Andreas Seufert, Prof. Dr. Ute Vanini, Roland Iff and Dipl. Wirt. Ing.Jens Bienik carefully weigh up who is entitled to own the title, prize money and, last but not least, the fame of our Award.

With this in mind, I am excited to be able to welcome you and each one from our international controlling network in May 2022.

I wish much success to all of the participants! 

Prof. Dr. Heimo Losbichler

Chairman of the International Association of Controllers

  • BASF
  • Pixum

How we will hand over the Award in view of the special situation has not yet been decided.

Oft gestellte Fragen zum ICV Controlling Excellence Award

Vorbildliche Controllerarbeit gibt anderen ControllerInnen Anstöße für eine konkrete Verbesserung ihres Controllings. Im Idealfall sind die Lösungen innovativ und zeigen neue Wege auf. Wichtig ist die praktische Umsetzbarkeit und dass das Controlling dadurch effizienter und/oder effektiver geworden ist, und das nicht nur nach Meinung der Controller, sondern auch der Manager.

Die Jury muss die erarbeitete Lösung verstehen und die Vorteile gegenüber dem Status quo ante erkennen können. Sie muss plausibel und nachvollziehbar sein. In den eingereichten Unterlagen sollte eine gewisse Sorgfalt erkennbar sein und ein paar grundsätzliche Elemente, für die wir auch einen Vorschlag ins Netz gestellt haben, abgedeckt werden. Der Rest ist den Bewerbern überlassen, es sollte aber knapp und prägnant sein.

Es geht nicht um die Prämierung von Zauberformeln für Unternehmenserfolg, die sich exakt kopieren lassen, sondern um organisatorische Innovationen, die tief in den Kontext des jeweiligen Unternehmens eingebettet sind. Auch mit dem Wissen über einen bestimmten Prozess ist ein Wettbewerber meilenweit davon entfernt, diesen schnell kopieren zu können.

Unter den Gewinnern des Awards sind auch kleinere Unternehmen zu finden. Allerdings haben diese oft alle Hände voll zu tun, mit der Entwicklung des Controllings mitzuhalten, die wesentlich von großen Unternehmen geprägt wird. Umgekehrt haben kleinere Unternehmen es leichter, innovative Lösungen in kurzer Zeit umzusetzen. Anders gesagt: Der ICV Controlling Excellence Award kann von Unternehmen jeder Größe und auch jeder Branche gewonnen werden!
