Advanced Cash Flow & Working Capital Management Course

Introduction

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 working capital and cash flow management are the actual value of a business.

The working capital and cash flow management course has also recognized the significant potential for improved financial performance from the more effective management of working capital – directly from immediate cash gains and reduced net interest costs and indirectly through its impact on increased profitability and return on capital employed.
