Financial Controllers operate in a global environment where flexibility is the watchword. There has been widespread recognition of the need for finance to develop from being a scorekeeper to a business partner. Many organisations have changed their finance function as a result. Non-financial objectives such as risk, IT ROI, quality, reliability, lead times and customer satisfaction have gained in importance. Much more attention needs to be paid to the external environment, particularly the business’ competitive advantage, applying a wider strategic perspective. In this programme you will learn how to:

  • Identify alternative roles for controllers in complex organisations
  • Clarify both technical, managerial and strategic implications of financial control
  • Integrate new developments in strategic management accounting, information management and support for decision making
  • Implement methods of change management in their organisation


  • Understand the extent of change in the role of the Financial Controller and to focus on the areas of their organisation where change is required
  • Use the information sources within their organisation to assist the management process
  • Prepare for the introduction of advanced methods of information management
  • Critically assess the planning process in their organisation
  • Participate fully in strategic planning
  • Understand the role of advanced budgeting and where it might fit into their organisation
  • Integrate new developments in strategic management accounting, information management and support for decision making
