Week One

During this week, we will cover the Cash to Cash (C2C) Cycle (also known as the Cash Conversion Cycle or CCC).  We will also cover the concept of float and why effective supply chain operational execution is critical to eliminating float and speeding up the C2C Cycle.  We will also learn the concept of working capital, its importance, and how SCM enables effective working capital management.  Lastly, we will learn how a firm’s financial statments can give key insights into supply chain costs and how using the right supply chain processes and tactics can help a firm achieve improved financial results.
