The adage “Cash is King” refers to the importance of cash to the fiscal health of an organization. And like all tyrants, you’ll regret not having its good graces, to either survive a down market or capitalize on growth opportunities. A company can have large amounts of receivables, but still lack enough cash for short-term operations. Unless it is able to convert its current assets to cash quickly, it could be bankrupt despite a positive net worth.

Benefits of Cash Flow Management
Most CEOs understand the value of forecasting cash. The key benefit is visibility. The further out you can reliably predict cash flows, the earlier you will spot a potential problem, and the more options you will have for dealing with it successfully. However, projecting cash flows is futile if you don’t have the resources or discipline to work through a concerted process.
