It also determined whether the size, profitability, inventory, and the current assets financing policy could enhance the WCM performance. The variables were 'Cash Conversion Efficiency' (CCE), afinancial performance measure, and 'Overall Working Capital Performance Ranking', a non-financial performance indicator. The findings revealed that the inventory, size, and profitability had significantly influenced the WCM performance.
