Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general) / reference letter
German term or phrase: Businesspläne
"Projektbezogene Verfolgung und Pflege der eingehenden Businessplane und Anfragen "

This is from the list of duties of the former employee. I'm fine with everything but "Businessplane". It's a deutschified English word. I can only come up with "business plans", but that doesn't seem to make sense here.
Thanks for the help!

Business targets

If it was referring to 'plans' it would say 'Pläne', if I am not mistaken.
For the employee to 'maintain targets' sound more of a job description, not?

Hope this works for you!
Good luck!

You are all correct: business plans would be the best, but since the questions was: is there an alternative, I thought 'target' would be appropriate.

But since everyone seems to decide that 'plans' should remain.... the choice is Bryan's.
