Recommendation:

From the theory, research and practice we find similarity between our visiting organizations and also found some contrast. But most of the parts of the reports are similar like theoretical study. In some place we find lack, which can be negligible. If we identify the Banglalink Gsm Telecom Co.  in terms of managerial value as 100% but there achievement found 85% that is excellent and acceptable. And they have a long periodical experience in Telecommunication Business sides.
