These involve: forecasting likely cash receipts and payments establishing funding lines necessary to cover asset purchases or for working capital efficiently managing day-to-day operations with regard to the amount of cash required selecting appropriate investment opportunities that result in positive cash flow monitoring the profitability of products and services to ensure they are cash generative and not cash destroying, having a plan for managing excess cash that exceeds demand Cash rather than profit has always been the ultimate determinant of whether a business survives.

Successful and ambitious organisations recognise the 'growth imperative' but are often insufficiently aware of what might threaten continued success. Growth means change. What worked last year won't necessarily work next year - an organisation that wants to manage growth successfully will need to change things that aren't yet broken. Growth, and the change it brings, affects every aspect of the business - people management, marketing, customer and client management, financial management, organisational design, performance management and measurement. Growth gives rise to problems for businesses of all size. A young business run by its entrepreneurial founders is quite likely not to pay enough attention to the robustness of an organisation's structure and systems. Different divisions in a big business will evolve at different speeds and be at different stages of their evolution, each with their own particular issues to address - plus the need to be satisfactorily reconciled with each other. This guide explores the different aspects of growth and outlines strategies and tactics that will enable businesses to address the issues they face and move forward to a bigger and even more successful future.

On rounding: Two times two makes four. Right? Wrong! The answer could be anywhere between two and six when dealing with rounded numbers. On percentages: If the inflation rate rises from 10% to 12%, it has risen by two percentage points, but the actual percentage increase is 20%. On probability: The probability of dealing a five-card hand containing four aces is 48/2,598,960=0.0000185 or 1 in 54,145. Not something to put money on. Are you intimidated at the thought of numbers in planning, forecasting, and monitoring? Does the idea of having to interpret last quarter's results deprive you of sleep? Now, from the Group which publishes one of the world's most respected business magazines, comes a book which is a comprehensive guide to using numbers to solve problems and make decisions in a business environment. The Economist Guide to Business Numeracy brings together dozens of quantitative techniques that you can use to maximize your business performance.
