In the course of my professional career in international corporations I got to know the various facets of the management accounting and reporting function and later even defined them myself. The preparation of budgets, periodic closing procedures and the resulting analysis belonged to my area of responsibility as well as the product and project calculation and the creation of business cases.
In addition to financial reporting, I defined operational key figure systems for production, sales and after-sales services and designed scenarios for savings and outsourcing programs and monitored their implementation. As a key player in various projects, I introduced business intelligence applications and implemented a shared services concept for my specialist department.
Currently I’m witnessing the transition process of pure management accounting to business analytics fostered by the introduction of Big Data and digitalization which will transform the way of corporate decision making and management.
It gives me great pleasure to be part time lecturer for the Berlin International University of Applied Sciences, to share my experiences, exchange thoughts and ideas and gain valuable impulses.
