Overview:

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 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.

Key areas covered in this program include:

  • Optimising working capital
  • Managing accounts receivable
  • Managing inventory
  • Strategic management of cash & working capital
  • Planning, forecasting and monitoring cash and working capital
  • Financial modelling tools and techniques for cash and working capital management

 

Objectives

By the end of this programme you will be able to:

  • Acquire an understanding of the fundamentals of effective management of cash flow, including the optimisation of the level of working capital.
  • Develop practical experience of how to manage cash flow and optimise working capital to facilitate such delivery in real life business situations.
  • Increase personal financial skill levels
  • Develop confidence through understanding the major drivers of successful financial performance.
  • Learn a number of technical skills, all of which lead to the ability to calculate the required figures and implement them into value adding business decisions.

 

Training Methodology

This seminar is strongly participative, with a learning-by-doing style that makes extensive use of examples, and team-based exercises and case studies (both numeric/analytical and non-numeric/descriptive), and open discussion. A fair level of numeracy is an advantage on this course as is some prior familiarity with the financial basics of income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements (although this is not essential).

The course will include refresher sessions on accounting and the basics of discounted cash flow (DCF). Each day will comprise several sessions, introducing new material to build on the learning from previous sessions. The program is designed to support the company’s organisational values, enabling employees to learn key finance skills.
