Welcome to the International Controllers Association ICV!
8th International Controller Congress, Poland 2014 (Congress in English)
Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision!
Members and Supporters of the International Controller Association!
It is difficult to make a key decision. It is difficult to open up to change, to leave the safe comfort zone and to go against the flow! After all, sometimes we are not sure if our ideas are actually good, sometimes we are not able to enthuse others about them. I am convinced, however, that only those who – thanks to innovative, interesting solutions – are able to meet market expectations and have the courage to change themselves and their businesses, will be successful.
As controllers, we actively participate in the search for such solutions in our companies. We strive for cost optimization, higher effectiveness, better communication and greater flexibility. We have the courage to depart from patterns and look for better ways to do things. We implement interesting ideas, we are innovative and persist in pursuing our goals – the success of our companies. We require our coworkers and superiors to respond faster, we learn to take comprehensive actions.
Fortunately, we have some excellent teachers to learn from! The representatives of such Polish and foreign companies that have succeeded in creating and implementing innovation will be the speakers at the 8th International Controller Congress – Controlling Intelligence Adventure.
Among speakers we have:
- Dr Hendrik Vater, Deutsche Post DHL, Germany, Working Capital Management
- Jakub Tomaszewski, Hansgrohe SE, Poland, New Controlling trends in Hansgrohe
- Marian Kubiak, Volkswagen Poznań, Poland
- Andreas Kovacs, MCE Magyar Controlling Egyesület, Hungary, Improving Organisation and Management at a OkoKlinik
- Bojan Scepanovic, MCB, Serbia, Modern Budgeting
- Denko Yamboliev, Bulgaria

- Justyna Leszczyńska, Polska Agencja Prasowa, Poland, Logic or intuition in Controlling?
- Andrzej Wodecki, Aerobrains, Poland, Brain Fitness of a Financial Controller
I am convinced that due to its subject-matter, the Congress will provide a unique opportunity to learn from the best! I am looking forward to meeting you in Poznań!

|The current state of the understanding of controlling and role of a controller was formulated by the International Controller Association (ICV) and the International Group of Controlling (IGC) a policy paper and was presented on the evening before the 38th Controller Congress in April 2013 in Munich. Controlling is an important factor of company’s success in German speaking countries, says the policy paper. Simultaneously there are a lot of uncertainties what’s the heart of controlling. The goal of the project is to formulate the current state of the understanding of controlling and role of a controller as a policy paper of the ICV and the IGC.|

The Internationaler Controller Verein e.V. (ICV) [International Controller Association] has more than 6,000 members, mainly from the German-speaking area. They perform practical controlling in small and medium-sized as well as in large-scale enterprises.
The association was established in 1975. It is a meeting platform for controllers, popularises the philosophy and use of controlling, promotes exchange of experiences and enables its members to increase professional qualifications. It acts as a representative body and serves as a model of managerial and operational competence represented by members of the association in relations with the public. The exchange of experiences and communication among the members as well as focusing on the future-oriented issues constitute essential objectives of the association’s strategy.
The contribution margin may be defined as the surplus of net revenue over the costs clearly entailed without allocating structure costs using a key.
