Colleges, schools, and other training camps play an important role in the development of skills to make them corporate ready and meet the emerging needs of business, industry, and educational institutions. The focus is on the result and usually ignores the process of making the student corporate ready. To be able to assess the process, one needs to know more about the abilities, skills, and strategies.
