Course Overview

What is cash management training? In today’s extremely competitive environment, the need to improve free cash flow is gaining more and more importance. In many industries, access to equity or debt capital is difficult and the need for generating funds from within is on the rise.

Besides, companies not only have to make profits but must also be able to distribute it amongst the business owners and shareholders. An efficient cash flow management is therefore inevitable for the financial health of the company.

It is almost impossible for an organisation to have an efficient cash management system without proper control over its working capital. According to a report by PWC, €1.36 trillion could be released from the balance sheets of global listed companies by improving working capital management.  This course will cover all aspects of cash management with particular emphasis on working capital management.

The ZOE course will also provide the necessary understanding of different sources and applications of funds and their utilization. This includes Capital Investments appraisal, understanding various components of Working Capital, and advantages of having an efficient Enterprise Resource Planning system.

At the end of the course, the participants will have a better understanding of the ways to optimize free cash flow, maintain a fine balance of working capital, and investment of surplus funds to increase shareholders’ value.
