Course Description

This is the beginning of a series that will cover aspects of the Controllership function.

Controllers are essential to the day-to-day accounting for organizations. Yet, the role is not often readily understood. In today’s world of acronyms such as CFO, CEO, COO, CAO, etc., the controller function may get lost in the shuffle. However, they are a critical group of professionals that will ensure the adequacy and transparency of accounting & auditing and financial reporting information.

A controller is an individual who has responsibility for all accounting-related activities including high-level accounting, managerial counting, and finance activities within a company. Duties of a controller include assisting with the preparation of the operating budgets, overseeing financial reporting, and performing essential duties relating to payroll. However, in today’s evolving world, the Controller function can provide much more in-depth value to their organizations.

This series is dedicated to exploring the traditional controller role and stepping out of the box to identify areas where the controller can continue to add strategic value to their organizations.

This webinar will focus on the typical controller function and begin to identify ways to elevate the function.
