International Group of Controlling IGC / International Group of Controlling (IGC)
The International Group of Controlling IGC was founded in 1995. Its main objectives are to promote common interests in accounting and controlling education as well as research and development in the whole field of controllership. The IGC also serves as a platform for its members to harmonise and develop a common understanding of controlling concepts and a uniform terminology. Based on these objectives the IGC formulated a mission statement for controllers already in 1996:
| Controllers design and accompany the management process of goal-finding, planning and controlling and thus are co-responsible for reaching the objectives.
The dictionary for controllers, published by the International Group of Controlling IGC, is aimed at practitioners (controllers and managers) – as well as students. It is intended as a reference guide for the most important technical terms. This 4th edition has been enhanced and revised to various currently discussed terms. The dictionary for controllers was purchased more than 17’000 times since the year 2000. Thus it has become an international standard for technical terms in controlling and for controllership.
