15.00 Speeches of the Value Partners

Smart transformation process with CCH TagetikHarald Schötz, Franz Tomann


The crisis affects - and everyone! Above all, it dramatically accelerates the challenges that we have seen for several years. The change, the transformation, takes place technologically and economically as well as organizationally. Our “SMART” initiative would not have been technically possible without the innovations of recent years. Hear in the CCH Tagetik lecture how the organizational transformation is being managed in the Wolters Kluwer Group and how the “SMART” initiative has also brought about new technological paths.

Mentoring ICV Silver Professionals x ICV Young Finance Professionals
Rainer Grossenbacher, Markus Steiner, Angelina Tassone


"Mentoring is a simple and efficient measure to promote and develop people. A technically competent and experienced person (mentor) passes on their own experience to a less experienced person (mentee) and is available for exchange and discussion The aim is to support the mentee with personal or professional developments. The range of topics is not limited and ranges from training, career, leisure to personal development and personal goals. This is entirely up to the tandem. This promotes a willingness to reflect and change as well as communication skills among those involved. The development of mutual trust is therefore extremely important for a successful partnership. At a first glance, mentees in particular appear to benefit from this support, but they also appear give the mentor many advantages. The concept of mentoring assumes a mutual give and take".

Quantitative risk management as a navigator through the crisis
Samuel Brandstätter

  • The link between the risk portfolio and the financial risk-bearing capacity
  • Risk simulation and stress testing demystified and democratized
  • The risk barometer as a communication tool between the management board and the supervisory board

Diagrams in reporting: more harm than good?
Dr. Gerald Butterwegge

The visualization of data places high demands on clarity and comprehensibility. Diagrams’ readers and recipients are usually in a hurry and their attention is scarce.
In companies, false conclusions and misinterpretations are associated with costs and risks. "Data visualization should not be based on the tongue-in-cheek to manipulative tricks of opinion-forming in the media, nor should board members entertain board members with journalistic data storytelling." Instead, the main focus is on finding out where goals have been achieved or missed, analyzing the causes and sending signals. A few, but consistently used visual means and the appropriate coloring, which are shown in the lecture, are sufficient.

Introduction and use of data analytics governance
Tilman Hagen

In many companies, unclear processes and responsibilities for business intelligence, reporting or planning applications, poor data quality and transparency of existing data as well as heterogeneous and historically grown tool landscapes with many isolated solutions make everyday work more difficult.

Data analytics governance helps to clearly structure the business intelligence organization. As a regulatory framework, it helps through consistent application to achieve the overarching goals along the dimensions of organization, technology and content of the BI strategy.

In our speech, we will show you how the introduction of data analytics governance succeeds and what benefits it can bring.
