Planning & Performance Management

Are you exposing your business to serious risk from poor working capital management practices?

The current squeeze on cash and credit is threatening the survival of many businesses. Working capital requirements are having a direct impact on the market valuation of a business, which in turbulent times falls under even greater scrutiny by shareholders and investors. Good working capital management has never been so important. But just how confident are you that you have an accurate view of your organisation’s current cash flow and liquidity?
