There are three fundamental building blocks of effective cash management: working capital optimization, cash flow forecasting and liquidity management. This document is designed to help organizations assess the strengths and weaknesses of the working capital management process.
Sample questions include: How reliable is our cash flow forecasting? Will we have access to our lines of credit, if needed? Should our investment strategy change? Will we be able to collect our receivables? Are we adjusting inventory levels based on reliable leading indicators? Should we adjust our capital spending and major maintenance plans? Do we have assets we should sell?
