After a definition of the content of "controlling", there is a discussion of the basic organizational integration in companies and an overview of the essential, key figure-oriented instruments of controlling. On the basis selected problem definitions a discussion of the instruments and appropriate characteristic numbers takes place against the background of the coordination problems from view of the management, which can be solved thereby. Concrete application possibilities of the instruments are illustrated in detail using practical examples and exercises.
