Is Your Inventory Turning Fast Enough?

Inventory is often an afterthought; that is until your finance team declares "we're running out of cash!" While there is no I in team, the I of Inventory is critical to cash flow and the working capital health of a business.

This seminar will focus on ways to reduce existing inventories and maintain positive control through definable, predictable, and repeatable processes.

  • Name the inventory mountain; RAW, WIP, or Finished Goods
  • Tame Mount Inventory; consume, return, or sell
  • Keep the (now) molehill from turning back into a mountain
