Ratio, Management

Management ratios address the efficiency with which the managers are running the business. Ratios include the average collection period, i.e. how long it takes the business to collect money owed to it, average payment period, i.e. how long it takes the business to pay money to creditors, and inventory turnover ratios, i.e. how many weeks stock is on hand. As with all ratios, the trend is more important than any one value. See also Ratio Analysis and Ratio Solvency.
