Abstract
We have identified a number of different roles within the controller’s role itself. Two types of discrepancies were discovered. The first one, called interpretation gap shows that there is a discrepancy between the managers’ expectations on the role of the controller and the controllers’ interpretation of these expectations. The second discrepancy illustrates that there are expectation gaps occurring when it comes to the managers’ and controllers’ expectations of the role of the controller.
