Using the right ingredients at the right time is the holy grail of business planning. While you may have to dig through the weeds to get there, it’s worth the effort. The business school and the state department have a number of resources at their disposal. A few notable mentions include the state department’s economic, business, and public information department and the state department’s office of economic and research. For the uninitiated, the state department’s office of economic and researchers may have to rely on the state department’s website, or, to be more precise, the state department’s web site. The website provides a portal to numerous state department offices as well as several other state departments and agencies. Its main job is to help foster and develop partnerships between state departments and to assist state departments and other state agencies in their quest to make Missouri a better place to live and work.
