What is Cash Flow Forecasting?

Cash Flow Forecasting is the process of estimating the amount of money that will flow in and out of a project over a specific period. It helps project managers anticipate financial needs, allocate resources effectively, and avoid cash shortages. By forecasting cash flow, teams can make informed decisions, plan for contingencies, and ensure financial stability throughout the project lifecycle.

Challenges managing Cash Flow

Common challenges we see when performing Cash Flow

❌ Duplication of Effort: Constantly updating cash flow data for new contracts, committments, risks or other forecasts is a waste of time.

❌Complicated Formulas: Inaccurate or complex formulas make visibility into cash flow make up impossible.

❌ Updating for Actuals: Incorporating what has been paid / actuals into the cash flow forecast is a painful manual reconcilliation.

❌ Inaccurate Projections: Without visibility, cash flow projections are inaccurate and guarantee errors.

❌ What's Changed?: Comparing actual vs. forecasted vs baseline cash flow takes a good day or so!

❌ Charts: Preparing cash flow charts for financial years, calendar years, cumulative, non cumulative, select budgets etc, takes forever!

Errrrrm is this good use of time? Hope all the formulas are correct! 😅
