...ltdDabur India - Working Capital and Cost Management Dr. Narender L. Ahuja, Institute for Integrated Learning in Management, New Delhi, India Ms. Sweta Agarwal, Institute for Integrated Learning in Management, New Delhi, India ABSTRACT After running as a family business for over 100 years, when in late 1990s the management of the Dabur was handed over to a team of professional managers, the new management faced a gigantic task of improving performance in several critical areas. In particular, working capital and cost management required urgent attention as the company’s performance in these areas had been far from satisfactory. The then prevailing current ratio of 3.2 and quick ratio of 2.4 were considered too high and indicative of heavy unnecessary investments in working capital that would have a negative effect on company’s profitability. Efforts to improve the working capital efficiency were met with stiff resistance from various quarters, but finally yielded results. The case study discusses the measures taken to improve the working capital and cost management performance, and how with concerted efforts the management turned around a highly inefficient working capital management into one of the most efficient in the FMCG sector of Indian Industry. In fact, the company seemed to have taken the matter to the other extreme of negative working capital, with the current ratio declining to 0.8 and the quick ratio to just 0.4 in 2004-05. In 2005-06 as the company was......

Competency mapping is gaining much more importance and organizations are aware of having good human resources or putting the right people on right job. Competency mapping is important and is an essential exercise. Every well managed firm should have well defined roles and list of competencies required to perform each role effectively. Such list should be used for recruitment, performance management, promotions, placements and training needs identification. In performing or carrying out work, it is essential that the required job skills first be articulated. This information not only helps to identify individuals who have the matching skills for doing the work but also the skills that will enhance the successful performance of the work. Yet often to perform well, it is not enough just to have these skills. It is also critical to complement the skills with the necessary knowledge and attitudes. For e.g. the necessary knowledge will enable an individual to apply the right skills for any work situation that will arise while having the right attitude will motivate him to give his best efforts. These skills, knowledge and attitudes required for the work are usually collectively referred as competencies. What is Competency?

Financial Analysis of Bata India Ltd

...efficiency as the company seems to have bought much more inventory than it could sell compared to last year hence leading to an increase. The negative cash flow in CFI is majorly due to the payment of the dividends, which forms 83% of the cash flow from financing activities. This payment of the dividends has remained constant showing that dividend distribution policy of Bata India hasn’t changed, providing a stable and consistent source of income for shareholders. It was observed Total Assets increased by 22% from last year, which can be majorly attributed to 26% increase in Inventories and 33% increase in Cash. This shows that major changes in Assets have been due to Current Assets, which have increased from last year by nearly 28%. A 33% increase in unsold inventories could be a cause of concern as this could mean either overproduction or slowdown in sales. A significant observation was that Bata currently has no long-term debt outstanding, indicating its capital structure is totally Equity Based. Since there have been no increase in long-term debt and no additional Equity was raised, we can conclude that Bata India primarily financed it operations from its Cash Reserves and Operating revenues. 2. 3. 4. Balance Sheet: 1. 2. Income Statement: The growth of Operating profit was a healthy 17% compared to last year despite SG&A expenses increasing by 14%.

...COMPETENCY MAPPING A competency is an underlying characteristic of an individual which enables him/her to deliver superior performance in a given situation. Competencies consist of clusters of knowledge, attitude and skill set. Competency mapping is the assessment of employee skill set as an individual and as part of a team.
