We invite you to the 23rd Controlling Insights Steyr on November 22, 2024

Business Performance through Controlling Excellence

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We would like to invite you to the 23rd Controlling Insights Steyr on November 22.

"The world is not out of joint, it is just now rearranging itself." This year's motto, "Business Performance through Controlling Excellence," refers to the current upheavals and challenges, in particular the negative economic environment and three defining megatrends: AI, climate change/sustainability and global location competition.

With an outstanding program, the CIS is the “place to be” to be prepared for these demanding competitive conditions and to receive impulses for corporate management.

By participating, you will gain an information advantage, the opportunity to exchange experiences with colleagues and good friends, and insight into new digitization solutions in DigiSpace (e.g. ESRS dashboards in PowerBI).

You will have the opportunity to register in September. We wish you a relaxing summer and look forward to your participation.

FH-Prof. Dr. Heimo Losbichler

Chairman of the ICV and the IGC
