Innovative controlling technologies

Modern agro-industrial and food industry enterprises require continuous improvement of management systems. The complexity and specificity of the agro-industrial production determine the approaches and management methods, which have to be innovative. The research objective was to examine the role of innovation in controlling, as well as innovative technologies of controlling that can improve management efficiency of food industry enterprises. The research was based on the neosystemic approach. This fundamental method of scientific knowledge was applied to all aspects of the innovative fundamental theory of agroindustrial complex organizations, the role of innovation in the controlling system, and innovative controlling technologies. According to the neosystemic approach, the controlling system was considered as a single system that consists of initial subsystems and uses knowledge and achievements of various fields of science to solve specific problems. As controlling implements the management process at agricultural enterprises, it means that relevant innovations should be developed in the field of agricultural enterprise management. To understand the role of innovation in the controlling system, the authors introduced the concept of ‘managerial innovation’. The choice of specific areas of managerial innovation in controlling should be based on the analysis of the external and internal environment, as well as on the strategic goals and objectives of the specific agricultural enterprise. In terms of its role and functionality, the controlling system is central to the management of the enterprise and, at the same time, has strong relationships with other systems and subsystems. Therefore, in order to select innovative technologies to be used in controlling, it is necessary to designate a range of tasks solved by the main elements of controlling. The paper describes the tasks of the main elements of controlling. The authors suggest innovative management technologies that can be used in controlling in the context of the main management functions such as planning, accounting, monitoring, and analysis. The approach takes into account the system of goal setting and the decision-making process in food industry. Thus, the main task of the modern controlling system is to form management technologies that use innovation as an element of the management cycle. Innovative technologies can be used in controlling both to achieve a strategic goal and to move to a new level of enterprise development.
