Why these topics?
The rules on how to manage companies have changed overnight. What was true yesterday is no longer true today. We need to simultaneously survive and grow, transform and preserve what was good.
The road ahead is unknown, uncertain and fraught with challenges and unpredictable outcomes. In this storm, many will find new niches, many will change direction completely, and some will lose their way, but one thing is for sure – the storm will not pass quickly.
When it seems that we are no longer managing anything and no one is in control of the situation, the most crucial thing is to have accurate and up-to-date information. Every crisis so far has taken controlling to the next level, and the same is true this time.
The rules have changed overnight. Until recently, we tried to keep production as lean as possible, optimise stocks, plan costs and ensure that employees met KPIs. The customer was king. Our focus was on expanding market share and increasing our bargaining power, but now we know that we were just enjoying the benefits of a peaceful period.
All of this has changed completely. Production has come to a halt due to a lack of raw materials, obtaining safety stocks is a considerable feat, costs have become non-negotiable, and employees have never been more important. Plans have been transformed into rolling forecasts with the aim of predicting what tomorrow holds. The customer can no longer be king. That story has come to an end.
Bargaining power is no longer at the center of discussions, revenues are not at the top of the agenda, but profitability is.
The important thing is to survive. And to keep going.
Why should you attend the conference?
- Outstanding speakers and high-quality lectures, first-hand experiences
- Key topics that managers and controllers across the globe are discussing
- A unique opportunity to learn about new trends and the responsibilities that lie ahead
- Networking, meeting new people, and gaining insight into tools that support controlling
- Learning about the work of ICV, the International Association of Controllers
What messages we can expect
During this time of crisis, the smart management of limited resources should be moderated by moving away from everything that is not essential and does not generate profit. The priority should be to focus on the most profitable existing revenue sources and be innovative when planning new ones.
But the greatest attention must now be paid to the employees. None of the above will be possible without agile teams composed of innovative people committed to a new strategy and tactics.
In order to reach this goal, a complete transformation is needed whereby the employees will truly become the most important asset.
Investing in people, their well-being, education, and training is an absolute must. The current labour crisis will certainly change how employees’ contributions are valued, which will consequently improve their status.
Requirements in terms of the knowledge, quality and commitment to ideas that employees need to possess will also change. It is also crucial to set clear parameters for transparent evaluation and rewards to encourage proactivity and a sense of achievement. Controlling will have to answer a number of new questions.
Considerable changes and challenges lie ahead, and this period will go down in history as an era of great threats and opportunities. This is why we can say that now is the time to act with controlling of the new era.
See you on November 11, 2022, live in Zagreb!
