Business Plan Glossary/Dictionary
I must include a dictionary I consider very useful for those putting together a business plan. The Business Plan Dictionary meets my criteria for usability. This dictionary allow you to lookup terms using a search box or scroll down. The terms and definitions are extended where possible to give the user a multi-faceted look at the word in order to better appreciate it.
