A sample of 49 manufacturing organizations listed in ASE during the period of 2005-2016 is used. This research uses panel analysis (fixed and random effect techniques) in order to empirically investigate the impact of corporate governance in managing working capital efficiently. The model includes two variables of corporate governance; CEO tenure duration and board size and controlled the model by including the size of the firms, growth and the performance of company. The results suggest that the more experience the CEO has and the smaller the board size is, the better governance manufacturing companies in Jordan would be in managing their working capital efficiently. In addition, large, high growth companies efficiently manage their working capital in a better way.
