What is Industry Ready?

In Industry, it is the work output that matters. Work output is judged in terms of Skill, Knowledge, Communication and Execution. These can only be built together, and building one at the expense of the other is not useful.

Skills

Basic skills can be developed early, be it in coding in a particular language or framework, design, etc. This can happen only through repeated practice. Starting with simple skills building up to more complex capabilities and finally expertise. By increasing Skills, the work output can be delivered at a higher quality, and faster.

Knowledge

Knowledge refers to depth in a given field or domain such as AI, Blockchain or industry sectors such as Finance. This can happen only through exposure to learning materials, Industry interactions, etc. By increasing Knowledge, the work output is line with requirements and even with future needs.

Communication

Work output should be presented concisely and precisely. Good communication involves understanding both the content and audience. By increasing Communication, the features and qualities of work output can be presented and explained effectively.

Execution

More important than talking about an idea, is to execute the idea and bring it to fruition. This involves collaboration with others, and planning the work. By increasing Execution, work output is delivered predictably and making the best use of available resources.
