Management of Working Capital Case Study: “George’s Trains”

It appears that George is running a profitable business. George is aware you are in an MBA Managerial Finance class and comes to you for advice on his working capital practices. More specifically George asks you to do the following:

  • Describe his working capital practices, including his methods of capital budgeting analysis techniques.
  • Analyze the potential pitfalls in his capital budgeting practices that George should be aware of.
  • Develop a simple statement of cash flows for George’s Trains using any information gleaned from the video. What areas of improvement do you recommend? Provide at least three references from the Ashford University Library or other scholarly sources to support your recommendations.

In a three- to five-page paper (excluding the title and reference pages), respond to George’s request for advice in detail. The paper should be properly formatted in alignment with APA 6th edition formatting.

It appears that George is running a profitable business. George is aware you are in an MBA Managerial Finance class and comes to you for advice on his working capital practices. More specifically George asks you to do the following:

·         Describe his working capital practices, including his methods of capital budgeting analysis techniques.

·         Analyze the potential pitfalls in his capital budgeting practices that George should be aware of.

·         Develop a simple statement of cash flows for George’s Trains using any information gleaned from the video. What areas of improvement do you recommend? Provide at least three references from the Ashford University Library or other scholarly sources to support your recommendations.

In a three- to five-page paper (excluding the title and reference pages), respond to George’s request for advice in detail. The paper should be properly formatted in alignment with APA 6th edition formatting.

Watch the video. It is a narrative about George’s Trains. You will not get a lot of numbers, but more generalities. It will be up to YOU to fill in the blanks. Any numbers are fine – it is how you present the examples that will be what matters.

The key here is, YOU as a managerial consultant are coming in to help out George. George has got a good thing going, but there are some areas where George needs improvement. So there are three parts:

Part 1 – Educate George about working capital, and how his store practices working capital management. You need to provide sufficient background as to how working capital works.

Part 2- Once you have schooled George a little, what kinds of problems could he experience? Does George run into the risk of bankruptcy?

Part 3 – Now you get to practice assembling a statement of cash flow. There are no right or wrong answers here since you are making this stuff up. But you want to show George how all these pieces work together to manage working capital.

The number one issue I typically see is that there was no attempt to assemble a statement of Cash Flows. I do not give credit for portions of the assignment that were not attempted. Please do not contact me if you got a failing grade but did not attempt to assemble a statement of cash flows.

Another issue I see is that there is no linkage to the week’s readings from the text. You need to support your observations.
