The traditional view and the stereotype of controlling as bean-counter, book keeper, watchdog, number crunching and scorekeeping, which often had an exclusive focus on financial analysis of the past, have gradually been replaced by a closer business partnering role, leading to new terms such as the business oriented, change agent, internal consultant, co-pilot and business partner. At BASF, the role as business partner in controlling, started in 2006 with the implementation of the Controller Mission concept, consolidating its position in 2009 with the Business Partnering Initiative. The overall objective of this research, attending the demands and needs of BASF, was to evaluate the business partnering level in controlling with its internal customers. The specific objectives aimed to verify the difference in the evaluation of controlling business partnering level: 1) between controlling group and its internal customers; 2) between the different locations; 3) according to the different internal controlling customers areas. A survey was conducted with controlling employees and with BASF managers in South America. A metric scale of four point was used to assess the frequency of controlling acting as business partners, according to the 36 skills provided by BASF in three major perspectives personal requirements, interaction skills and commercial attitude. The survey results showed that, in general, there is a positive evaluation of the controlling business partnering role in BASF. Among the respondents, 82% positively evaluated the controlling business partnering role, with 31% and 51% said that “Always” and “Often”, controlling is business partner respectively. The minority (2%) assessed that controlling "Never" acts as a business partner and 15% of the respondents assessed that controlling "Seldom" acts as a business partner. Among the characteristics best evaluated: controlling act in compliance with established policies / standards; controlling is open and a loyal approach to the people; controlling build or actively maintain trustful relationships / networks. On the other hand, the characteristic with low evaluation by the respondents: comparison of BASF's performance with competitors; anticipation of externalities as new opportunities and risks; business status overview in a minute; refer regularly to the BASF strategy; and translating complex issues into simple language. It was found that controlling area has a more positive self-assessment as its business partner performance, in comparison to assessment by its internal customers, showing a gap between the assessments of the two groups. In addition, there was a less positive assessment from the respondents in Brazil, compared with the assessment made by the respondents in other countries in South America. However, as the evaluated characteristics were similar between the locations, it is possible to implement regional measures to improve business partnering level. Finally, the results confirmed that there is a difference between the business partnering level according to the different areas of its internal customers, although, in general, the points of improvements and strengths, were concentrated on the same characteristics raised.
