All markets managed expense growth in the same manner, outpacing inflation by less than 15%.
Chicago demonstrated the greatest upswing in average working capital – a surge of 155%. These organizations had comparably more ground to cover since their average working capital was the lowest of all regional market clusters in 2016.
San Francisco organizations saw relatively little change in months of working capital after a dip in 2017; similarly, expense growth in San Francisco remained steady, rising only slightly between 2016 and 2019.
