Now that the economy seems to be moving again, it's natural to worry less about working capital - natural, but not recommended. In fact, a recovery can be almost as dangerous for a business as a downturn. Move too slowly and you may lose out on important opportunities. Move too quickly, you may build up too much inventory and run out of cash.
Striking the right balance is not easy. A lot comes down to how well managers can answer some important questions, not only about inventory, but about customer credit risk and supplier terms.
