Bridging India's Skill Gap
IBM announced a study conducted by the IBM Institute for Business Value in cooperation with the Economist Intelligence Unit to evaluate India's growing skills challenge and proposed recommendations to bridge the gap.

The study, "Upskilling India," found that a majority of Indian executives surveyed in the study said that the quality and quantity of skills in the Indian workforce are at least comparable to those of other countries, and many reported them to be superior.

However, only 40 percent indicated new employees in local labor markets have the requisite job skills. 61 percent of India's higher education leaders said that the education system is unable to respond to society's changing needs.
