Mr Watson virtually presented his and Prof Struwig’s joint research paper titled “Working capital management research in South Africa during the COVID-19 pandemic”. The purpose of the study was to provide a critical analysis of working capital management research in South Africa during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stage 1: The global recession of 2009

Stage 2: Managing working capital during the pandemic

Stage 3: Working capital management during extreme change

Stage 4: Working capital management post pandemic

Stage 5: Managing working capital in the new economic order
