How we can help

Net Working Capital Excellence

Companies can free up significant cash by focusing on working capital, yet most struggle to make that happen. Our Net Working Capital Excellence program helps you quickly generate the cash you need to spur critical improvements to your business.

Achieving a step-change in net working capital (NWC) performance can be challenging. Companies tend to devote far more focus to operating profit. Financial reporting at the P&L level doesn’t measure working capital optimization. Gaining full visibility into cash performance and availability can be a struggle. And improving NWC performance requires cross-functional cooperation and alignment with mid-level managers, which is difficult to achieve, particularly when their incentives are misaligned with effective working capital management. We’ve helped companies in many industries overcome those obstacles and reduce the cash conversion cycle markedly—and sustainably.
