Cash flow is one of the most important issues facing contractors today. As the market continues to stay strong, companies are faced with starting new projects, hiring staff, and investing in assets to support the business. More companies go bankrupt due to cash flow issues than due to profitability. Many things can and should be done to improve cash management practices.

This course will explore a range of tools and techniques, from simple to complex, that allow firms to manage and control cash flow. Examples include contractual negotiation strategies, pricing bidding practices and use of 12-week cash flow forecasts, project closeout procedures and managing the billing and collection cycles.

An interactive cash flow simulation provides hands-on experience that enhances the learning outcome.

Following this course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the importance of cash management practices
  • Describe how to increase profits with billings and collections
  • Identify tools and techniques that optimize cash flow
  • Discuss how to maximize cash flow with process standardization
  • Describe how to create transparency and accountability with measurement
