Management of WC in synchronization with sales is of immense importance for the purpose of cost effectiveness and thus profit maximization. Impressive WC ratios are not the only indicators of efficient WC management. There should be positive and strong correlation between WC and sales, so that any increase or decrease in one is supported by the same in other. Efficient WC management should have least deviations in projected and actual values of WC and sales.
