WHU Digitalization Pulse Check

Studies for heads of controlling on the impact of digitalization

The WHU Digitalization Pulse Check began in the spring of 2017. The survey targets heads of controlling in larger companies in Germany and aims to provide insights into developments in the digitalization of controlling as they occur as well as a longitudinal perspective.

The spring 2017 study focused on the organization of digitalization within companies as well as the role that controlling plays in digitalization. You can download a poster of select results here.

The second WHU Digitalization Pulse Check focused on standardization, shared service use, and automation in controlling as well as barriers to the digitalization of controlling processes. Take a look at our results poster for key study findings.

The title of the summer 2018 study was "Agility & Controlling", which provided answers to the following questions: How agile is the controlling function? How adaptive are management processes? Do controllers have the “right” mindset?
