WAND General Business Taxonomy


The WAND General Business Taxonomy is a basic foundation set of terminology for any business covering five major business functional areas that are common to every company: IT, Legal, HR, Accounting and Finance, and Sales and Marketing. The General Business Taxonomy, with over 500 terms, is an easy way for companies to begin to use taxonomy with common and familiar terminology for any business. For many companies, the General Business Taxonomy is a terrific starting point to begin creating their own term sets.
