Business organizations go through cyclical changes. Since change is however constant, business planners should reason that businesses experience constant changes. Consequently, planning is assumed to be dynamic in the long term. Recently the world has witnessed major decline in crude oil prices due to crude oil glut. Oil producing economies have been particularly hit resulting to serious cash-flow and working capital squeeze. The upward movement in oil prices has at best been sluggish. Nations’ economies and businesses are undergoing frequent calibration. The persistence of uncertainties is therefore a challenge that must be confronted by all organizations.

Those organizations that seek solutions vigorously are more likely to outperform their competitors. Working Capital is paramount   to the success of business operations. Research has indicated that inefficient working capital management has led to several business failures. This course is therefore critical to various organizations.
