Instructor for this course

In this course we explore some popular approaches to cash flow forecasting. We assume participants have basic experience or familiarity with their organizations’ cash flow forecasting. In this course we differentiate between two types of forecasting techniques.

First, we identify and explore the major methods used in cash flow forecasting. We ill profile each type of method and show examples of the method’s use.

Next, we explore the common models that can be used in a cash flow forecasting system. We  identify the data items needed for each model and discuss potential errors, how the model can be integrated into the overall forecasting system.

We review an overall cash flow forecasting system, showing how methods and models can be integrated. Note that all methods and/or models may not be used in our example. Participants are able to download all the models discussed in the course.

Course Key Concepts: Cash flow forecasting methods, Cash flow models, Cash forecasting tools, Cash forecasting framework, Statistical techniques for cash flow forecasting
