I'm Florent, a french consultant. During my own time, I like to write articles and books. My first book was a business novel on the Lean Six Sigma. For this first book, I did all the job, from the writting to the distribution, it's include the design of the cover... Today, I would like to give this kind of job to professionnal people. So many thanks in advance to participate to my contest ! ;-)
1 - Pitch of the book :
The idea is to take 10 principles of the financial control and to explain why they are dysfonctionnal.
To demonstrate problems of the traditionnal financial control, I used the systemic approach.
At the end of each chapter, I suggest a new commandment to use at the place of the old one.
Ssome examples of commandments :
commandment 1 : "On results of you KPI, you have to focus !" Becomes at the end "Before designing your scorcard, the understanding of the operating mechanism of the indicator, You'll make sure!"
commandment 2 : "In the forecast, you'll be a master !" Becomes at the end "Between the present and the futur, a bridge you'll have to built !
commandment 3 : "Based on the cost of products, all choice, you'll have to do !" Becomes at the end "To optimize the throughput, your choices will contribute !"
Some Tools explained :
Pareto, Theory of contraint, Throughput accounting, Benford Law, KPI, systemic approach, data management, dashboards, the black swan.

Between 25 years old up to 50.
2 - Format expected :
1800 px X 2700 px
PSD files for both covers (front and back side) with all layers availables for modifications (no layers merged).
3 - Information on the front cover :
The name of the author : Florent FOUQUE
The Title of the book : L'antibible du contrôle de gestion
The subtitle : Pour la rénovation des 10 commandements du contrôleur de gestion
Information that a USB CARD is included with audio version and bonus : Inclus : Une carte USB avec la version audio et des bonus
If the designer decide to show The USB card on the cover (ex:card_usb_Flash_Disk.jpg), this one should be customized with the same picture of the cover book. If the usb card isn't on the cover, a version with the usb card closed the book will be asked for the promotion of the book.
4 - Information on the back cover :
For the back side of the cover, a psd file will be given with the ean13 barre code and the font file. (Back_Cover_Antibible_CG.psd - font : ean13)
A .doc file will be available with the text to include (txt_for_the_back_side.doc)
A historical reference could be used to illustrate the ten commandments, but it's not an obligation. (10-commandments.jpg)
If the designer do the choice of the reference, an emply tablet with the font should be deliver with the cover in order to illustrate the beginning of each chapter inside the book.
Last information on the contest : It's not me who will chose the best cover, I'll propose the most beautiful for my readers and I'll let them to chose the best one ! So GOOD LUCK ! ;-)
