Sammanfattning: The controller role was first used in the 1970s in Sweden, and since then the role hasundergone a lot of changes and development processes. Because of that the concept has beenmisused in several places and therefore the definition of a controller has become very unclear.The literature sees a controller as someone who works in the field of economics and hasduties in almost everything that economics means. The purpose of the essay is therefore togain an insight into the role of controller as well as to try to figure out the concept. To find outwhat a controller is working with, to explain and clarify the role of controller. Also comparingthe literature to the working world. During the course of the study the essay has followed anabductive approach with a qualitative research method. Six interviews with six controllershave been conducted, three of which are in the private sector and three in the public sector.The study has focused on four parts, the way the controller's career path looks, the role ofcontroller, what tasks the controller has and what personal qualities the controller has. Theoutcome of this is that the career path is in line with the literature, the controller role is not inline with the literature, the work tasks correspond to some extent with the literature, andpersonal characteristics are in part appropriate to the literature.
