Guide to Management Accounting CCC (Cash Conversion Cycle) for managers
Since the unprecedented financial crisis Lehman shock that occurred on 15th September 2008, the values of corporate management have been significantly changed from the profit and loss statement (P/L) to the balance sheet (B/S) and the cash flow (C/F).
In order to cope with the increasing surplus bankruptcy and accounting fraud, strengthening cash management is an urgent issue.
CCC (cash conversion cycle, cashing speed) is prevalent in Europe and the US, but in Japan it is not yet popular except some companies. Rather than handling CCC as a simple financial indicator, we need to know what kind of practical knowledge is necessary to create corporate value, as relation to other management indicators as management accounting, and to connect CCC effectively to improvement activities. In addition, this book will explain about the problems in Japanese commercial practice and accounting system while comparing the latest CCC data between Japan and the US.
