Three panel studies are carried out each year to track benchmarks in core areas of controlling. The topics that come regularly under study include reporting, planning, controlling & IT, salary and incentive schemes, etc. Parallel to this, we carry out in-depth studies of other issues that are of particular current relevance to the field of controlling. What tools do successful companies use in periods of volatility? What effect is digitalization having on management reporting? What does digital transformation mean for controlling? What are the topics that will shape controlling in future? The answers to these and other fascinating questions provide our members with the opportunity to compare themselves and their company's controlling departments with others. The analyses of the WHU Controller Panel provide thought-provoking ideas and recommendations for use in practice.
The full and detailed reports of each study are available exclusively to members of the WHU Controller Panel. Controlling professionals working in business and non-profit organizations can register to become members.
All others interested in controlling topics can find customized information on our portal "WHU on Controlling Premium". This includes our "Controlling Trends & Benchmarks", which provides key facts and figures on controlling in summarized form. We also offer students the opportunity to contact us within the scope of research projects to obtain - after providing information on the specific subject under study - selected study findings: whu-controllerpanel(at)whu.edu.
