CTS Controlling Conference Switzerland 2020

Management in an agile environment -
The controlling toolbox must be expanded.

30.09.2020 online

In addition to digital transformation, many companies also deal with the agile transformation of business models. After digitization has increasingly found its way into Swiss companies, it is now necessary to meet the need for new forms of communication and work. On the one hand, controlling can benefit from agile forms of communication and work and establish an agile mindset in the controlling department. On the other hand, you require from controlling to make the added value of agility in the company measurable with adequate management systems.

Using practical examples, the speakers from different sectors show how they drive digitization and agility in controlling and what experience they have gained. The panel discussion “Agile work environment in Finance” promotes the exchange of experiences and the discussion in the field of digitization and agility among the participants.
