ENG: ICV Controlling Excellence Award 2022: SAP, Phoenix Contact and Deutsche Post DHL Group are nominated

Awarded on May 9 as part of the 46th Congress of Controllers in Munich

The finalists in the competition for the ICV Controlling Excellence Award 2022 have been chosen. Deutsche Post DHL Group, Phoenix Contact and SAP convinced the Jury with their entries that they had found an exemplary controlling solution for their company. The Head of the Jury, Prof. Dr. Utz Schäffer presents the winner at the award ceremony as part of the ICV Congress of Controllers in Munich on May 9.

The Award Jury with members Prof. Dr. Andreas Seufert, Prof. Dr. Ute Vanini, Roland Iff, Dipl. Wirt.-Ingenieur Jens Bieniek, Dr. rer. pol. Lars Grünert headed by Prof. Dr. Utz Schäffer explains their decision about the three finalists. "The nominated projects cover the trends of sustainability and agility, which are highly relevant for controlling, with convincing solutions," summarizes Utz Schäffer. Completed by the submission of a classic task from the medium-sized sector, the final of the ICV Controlling Excellence Award 2022 shows the range of the current task portfolio of the controllers. The Deutsche Post DHL Group project deals with the integration of ESG dimensions in controlling and corporate management. The solution from the medium-sized Phoenix Contact GmbH & Co. KG shows a uniform product cost determination process with simulations and scenario calculations. With the implementation of agile organizational forms, the SAP project provides a modern delivery model for controlling.

The winner of the ICV Controlling Excellence Award presents their project in detail and thus an excellent best practice solution from which the participants can learn and benefit for their own everyday work at the ICV Congress of Controllers on May 9. This practical approach is traditionally present in the entire agenda of the renowned Congress, which takes place on May 9/10, 2022 for the 46th time under the direction of the International Association of Controllers, this time under the motto "Knowledge for Tomorrow's Business". The largest expert meeting of the controlling community in Europe relies on the tried and tested mix of lectures, topic clusters and free space for discussions with the speakers, colleagues and experts from the field of corporate management over two days. The content focus of this year's Congress is on the burning topics of digitalization, sustainability and agility, whose aspects and implementation options for controlling are deepened in the topic clusters.

The face-to-face meeting in Munich's congress hotel The Westin Grand is the unique opportunity over the course of the year to comprehensively and deeply update oneself on controlling and corporate management over the course of two days. Top-class topics and speakers as well as interested participants from practice and teaching contribute their part. It is just as important for the ICV as an organizer with its around 6,000 members and more than 200 corporate members that everyone interested in controlling can meet and exchange ideas in person beyond the member network. The Congress of Controllers, which is also open to non-members, offers not only the breaks during the day's agenda, but also the Happy Hour and the Controllers’ Beer Garden with plenty of space and time to talk to old friends and new faces and thus the opportunity to strengthen your network sustainably.

Congress language is German – but there are two speeches in English.
