In recent years there has been a growing recognition that, in the long run, effective management of cash flow is more important than profit. Long-term cash flow is the real value of a business. It has also been recognised that there is significant potential for improved financial performance from the more effective management of working capital both directly from immediate cash gains and reduced net interest costs, and indirectly through its impact on increased profitability and return on capital employed. A key challenge in achieving these performance improvements results from the fact that actual levels of working capital and delivery of cash flow are effectively determined by the day-to-day actions of a great many managers and staff, which in large corporations often run into tens of thousands. This highly participative 5-day seminar covers the principles, techniques and skills involved in the effective management of cash flow and working capital in any business, blending a clear theoretical framework with extensive use of real-life examples and case studies.
