YEP focuses on group and management skills, but also individual skills such as preparing your own business plan. The knowledge, expertise and skills you have learned through YEP will give you the tools to create this plan for your organization. This business plan will challenge you as you will need to incorporate innovative and creative ideas. Business plans can include an introduction to a new product, launch of a unique service, or the plan to acquire a new market. They are a way to add value to your employers’ business and will describe how the new ideas will affect the various functions and finances of the organization. YEP trainers, your personal coach and your employer will support you and be involved in this challenging exercise. The business plan that you create will be developed over the course of the two-year program and will be presented to the examination committee upon completion of the course.
