IBCS® Certified Consultant
Dr. Tomasz M. Zieliński has successfully completed the IBCS® certification for successful design of reports and presentations at the HICHERT+FAISST IBCS Institute in July 2022.
After attending the Certification Course, Tomasz M. Zieliński has provided work samples visualizing some results of a survey about controlling in Poland:
Work sample 1 - number of companies (by revenue) with or without controlling department This report shows the number of enterprises with and without a controlling department (first category – horizontal axis) in the entire population of surveyed companies, divided by the size of revenue (second category – vertical axis). The report uses the Marimekko Chart which is used to visualize categorical data from a pair of variables. In the chart both axes are variables with a percentage scale, that determines both the width and height of each category.
Work sample 2 - importance of controllers’ tasks This report presents nine tasks performed by controllers, sorted by the importance of these tasks. It is especially useful for presenting the results of survey questions using the Likert Scale. The Likert Scale is a type of rating scale which is used to allow survey respondents to express how much they agree or disagree with a particular statement (i.e. from 1 to 5). This report gives the idea of the differences between importance and unimportance, or like and dislike. By ignoring neutral results (answers in the middle marked by a horizontal line), it is easy to see which task is more or less important. It is also easy to compare the neutral answers with each other.
Work sample 3 - percent of controllers’ working time in companies by revenue This report presents the division of working time of controlling teams in enterprises divided by the size of revenue. The report allows for an easy comparison of the labor consumption in controlling processes between enterprises of different sizes, and between the average percentage of working time. The processes are sorted from the most labour-intensive to the least.
