Course Description

Under normal business conditions, companies primarily focus on the profit and losses–growing the top line while managing the bottom line. Routine back-office activities such as paying bills and turning receivables into cash are often taken for granted.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had many far-reaching implications. In addition to the financial reporting impact of the pandemic, many other business functions, such as managing cash flow is also proving to be challenging in the current environment and will require adjustments to how they were done in the past. 

In the current abnormal business conditions, smart companies are shifting their focus from the income statement to the balance sheet. Of the three elements of supply chain working capital–payables, receivables, and inventory, supply chain executives have a tendency to focus on inventory. But, in order to minimize working capital requirements during challenging times, it’s important to apply a coordinated approach that addresses all three areas.

Key topics discussed in this online Cashflow Management CPE webinars: 

  • Discuss the challenges of managing cash flow in a pandemic. 
  • The importance of cash flow 
  • The flow of business transactions in order to accelerate the availability to use cash to run the business will be a focal point of the discussion.
