Training Packages

The SIYB programme is structured into four separate training packages, which are designed to respond to the progressive stages of business development.

Generate Your Business Idea (GYB) is intended for people who would like to start a business, and who, through the training, develop a concrete business idea ready for implementation.

Start Your Business (SYB) is for potential entrepreneurs who want to start a small business and already have a concrete business idea. The programme is a combination of training, field work and after-training support, and helps participants assess their readiness to start a business and to prepare a business plan and evaluate its viability.

Improve Your Business (IYB) introduces already practising entrepreneurs to good principles of business management. Its six modules (marketing, costing, buying and stock control, record keeping, planning for your business, and people and productivity) can be taught individually or all combined in a full course.

Expand Your Business (EYB) enables growth-oriented small enterprises to develop a business growth strategy through training interventions.

The SYB and IYB packages also include the SIYB Business Game, a practical simulation tool to help participants understand the realities of starting and running a business. The EYB Business Game simulates an expanding business during training to help participants experience the impact of strategic decisions on their business operations.
