Preconditions for the special price:

Controlling of start-ups & start-up initiatives


Start-ups differ from established companies in their structures, organizational forms, resources, decision-making speed and flexibility. The transfer of classic controlling approaches is therefore only conditionally possible. Here too, controlling elements are indispensable in every phase of company development. The new ICV publication "Controlling of start-ups & start-up initiatives. Guidelines for managers and controllers on the right way to work with young companies" describes succinctly and practice-oriented, how the central controlling tasks as continuous liquidity assurance and the operation of information requirements of external stakeholders and investors are also ensured in start-ups.

Excellence in Reporting Design

Controllers are required to prepare large amounts of data for reporting so that managers can draw the necessary conclusions quickly and accurately. In addition to the selection of content, visual aspects are becoming more and more important. Scientifically sound recommendations for this have been missing so far. This guide wants to change that.

The results of eye tracking analyzes for the reporting design were the basis for the detailed design recommendations that you can find in this guide. In addition to the basics and focal points of a perception-optimized reporting design, the use and design of
- tables,
- classic chart types and
- selected interactive big data visualizations
is explained differently.

The guide shows also how controllers can develop a reporting design standard that is optimally tailored to company-specific requirements and thus achieve significant improvements in the effectiveness and efficiency of their reporting.

This guide represents the current status of modern reporting designs and supports controllers in their core business of decision support.
