Step 2

Analyze selected agribusinesses and design strategy

After deciding which agribusinesses will be targeted for an in-depth assessment, the partners use the SCOPE Basic and SCOPE Pro tools to assess the agribusinesses. These assessments are done by certified assessors to ensure data quality. The value chains and value chain actors are also assessed with the IDH Service Delivery Model Assessment.

Once these assessments are complete, the data is used, in combination with input from the AgriGRADE partners, to create a graduation strategy for the agribusinesses. Each level of segmented agribusinesses has its own training plan. 

Professionalization

All of the partners work together to develop the plans and ensure they are properly tailored to the most important aspects of professionalism. The partners also select the agribusinesses to receive services, based on a defined set of considerations.
