Pick a number. Any number. Better yet, let me toss you with some numbers. You have a dollar, I give you ten cents back. Now, you are thinking to yourself, “I’ve been ripped off, I only got ten cents for my dollar.” The next day, you give me another dollar and I give you 90 cents back. Your response, knowing that the day before I gave you 10 cents, is going to likely be that you received a good deal. In reality though, I have kept 10 cents from you.
But in your mind, the 10 cents originally, now 90 cents, is a sweet heart of a return. Welcome to the Business of Learning.
It’s in the numbers
Let’s face it the whole corporate and even education space is about numbers. If you want to have a program not cut at a university, you need the numbers to support saving it.
