The role of the Controller is changing. According to a recent IMA survey, 81% of Financial Controllers now report to either the president, owner, or a C-level executive - such as the CFO. More than 30% of the controllers, meanwhile, said that they were now taking on responsibilities that were traditionally carried out by the CFO - as their role is also evolving to make them more of a business partner to the CEO.

If you're a Controller who can't sleep and don't find that any of these apply to you, you should also monitor your coffee intake, try not to use a screen before you go to bed, and do more exercise during the day. So really, this is a list of 11 things. Sugar doesn't help either, so that's 12 things. You're welcome.
