Leveraging the Cash to Cash Cycle in Supply Chain Planning

Our presenter Dr. Mark Chockalingam:

The cash to cash cycle is a traditional supply chain evaluation of how quickly and efficiently the company is operating its supply chain - from putting cash into its operations, buying materials, converting them into a saleable good or service, making the sale and finally collecting the receivables. 

Dr. Mark Chockalingam is the President and Founder of Demand Planning LLC, a Business Process and Strategy Consultancy helping clients across industries: Pharmaceuticals, Consumer Products, Food and Beverage, High Technology, Utilities, Chemicals and Fashion Apparel.
