The Center for Performance Management & Controlling (CPMC) at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and the International Association of Controllers (ICV) have agreed on a cooperation beginning in 2021. The aim of the cooperation is to foster the exchange on current topics, jointly organise events, and strengthen the reach of the controlling community in science and practice.
In cooperation, Frankfurt School and the ICV will conduct studies on current issues in controlling and performance management with the aim of highlighting developments and challenges in corporate practice and outlining possible solutions. As a cooperation partner, the ICV brings a Europe-wide network of controlling practitioners and will support Frankfurt School with activities and content at various events such as the Controlling Dialogue, a networking event that takes place twice a year, as well as the annual conference of the CPMC.
"With its unique network in various companies and industries, the ICV complements the innovative power and creativity of professors at Frankfurt School. We are pleased to receive practical ideas and feedback from experts in the field," said Professor Ronald Gleich, Professor of Management Practice & Control and Research Director of the Center for Performance Management & Controlling.
"Combining science and research with corporate practice for the development of controlling is in the DNA of the ICV. We are certain that the cooperation with Frankfurt School will further strengthen our leading position and increase the benefits for our members. We have an excellent partner in Professor Ronald Gleich, who has been leading our think tank, the ICV Ideas Workshop, for years," said ICV Board Chairman Professor Heimo Losbichler.
