LE CONTROLEUR DE GESTION

1) SA MISSION
Le contrôleur de gestion, également appelé responsable de planification et de gestion :
- Exerce un contrôle permanent sur le Budget de l’entreprise : il élabore les prévisions budgétaires et met en place des procédures du contrôle.
- Il fournit une assistance dans tous le domaine afin de permettre l’utilisation optimale des ressources et élabore les outils nécessaires pour le suivi des résultats (tableau de bord, tableau des indicateurs).
En termes de prévision :
- Il participe à la définition des objectifs d’un service ou d’un département à partir des éléments donnés par le service commercial,
- Ensuite, il met au point un projet de plan avec les responsables opérationnels : niveau de production à atteindre, moyens financiers, humains et techniques à mettre en œuvre et réalise des études économiques et financières,
- Il peut aussi être amené à réaliser des études économiques et financières en termes de contrôle des résultats de l’entreprise (production, activité commerciale, sticks, rentabilité des investissements,….) Toutes ces interventions du contrôleur de gestion servent notamment à l’analyse des écarts existant entre les prévisions et la réalité,
- Il fait remonter l’information jusqu’à la direction générale et préconise des solutions pour remédier aux difficultés rencontrées.
Les missions du contrôleur de gestion sont plus ou moins étendues suivant l’entreprise dans laquelle il travaille. En effet, dans les petites et moyennes entreprises, le contrôle de gestion est assuré en même temps que d’autres fonctions comme la comptabilité, les finances, l’administration, la gestion du personnel ou l’informatique. Par contre, dans les grandes entreprises, la fonction est plus spécialisée.
2) SA FORMATION
Le contrôleur de gestion doit avoir une formation comptable, financière et managériale solide (maîtrise des principes de gestion). En effet, les niveaux de formation requièrent l’obtention des diplômes des sections économiques et financières, de la gestion de l’entreprise,… Dans tous les cas, la pratique de l’informatique et de l’anglais est indispensable.
3) LES EVALUATIONS A REALISER
Le contrôleur de gestion est appelé à voir si l’organisation administrative de l’entreprise ne constitue pas un handicap à la bonne exécution du travail. A la fin de sa mission, il devra signaler à l’entreprise contrôlée les éléments nuisibles à écarter provenant soit :
- De la Direction : l’anarchie, la centralisation exagérée du pouvoir, la lenteur dans la communication des instructions, le manque ou peu de con trôle administratif,…
- Des valeurs immobilisées et circulantes : les prêts à long terme qui financent les valeurs immobilisées et ceux à court terme les valeurs circulantes.
- Du personnel : absence de motivation, mauvaise politique salariale, sanction disciplinaires non mesurées, conditions insalubres du travail,…
- Des tâches : de la réparation inéquitable du travail, la lourdeur du système de travail,
- Des équipements : manque ou insuffisance, la non adaptation des équipements au travail, vétusté, obsolescence,…

The finance controller, sometimes known as the comptroller:
- Has permanent control over the company’s budget; draws up budgets and puts in place control procedures.
- Provides assistance across all areas to achieve the optimal use of resources, and creates the tools necessary to track results (such as a scoreboard).

In terms of planning, the financial controller:

- Is involved in defining the objectives of a service or department, using information provided by the sales department.
- Next, s/he draws up a project plan with the operational managers, including the level of production to aim for, financial, human and technical resources to use, and economic and financial research.
- S/he can also be required to conduct financial and economic research on the company’s results (production, commercial activity, stock market points, returns on investments…). The main aim of all of these actions is to analyse any gaps between and reality.
- S/he must relay information to the general management and suggest solutions to fix any problems identified.

The role of the financial controller can be wider or narrower depending on the company. In small and medium-sized companies, financial control is carried out alongside other functions, such as accounting, finance, administration, human resources and IT. In large businesses, however, the role is more specialised.

2. TRAINING

The financial controller must have received a solid training in accounting, finance and management. In reality, a diploma or degree with elements of economics and finance, and business management is required. Good IT and English skills are always essential.

3. EVALUATIONS

The financial controller is called upon to see if the administrative organisation of the company is an obstacle to its working well. At the end of this task, s/he must inform the company of the damaging elements to be eradicated, whether they come from:

- The management: anarchy, excessive centralisation of power, slow communication of instructions, lack of, or little administrative control…
- Fixed and current assets: long-term loans which finance fixed assets, and short-term loans which finance current assets.
- Staff: lack of motivation, poor salary policy, disproportionate disciplinary sanctions, unsafe working conditions…
- Tasks: inequitable remuneration of labour, a inefficient work system.
- Equipment: lack of or insufficient equipment, poorly-adapted work equipment, dilapidation and obsolescence.

C’est très intéressant

C’est très intéressant d’apprendre sur ce rôle. C’est très bien que les femmes parlent des différents travaux.. peut-être ça peut encourager une jeune fille à aspirer à faire ça.
