Business-class education: what will you get?

Completion and services of your seat on board


Let’s imagine that all boarders are open again, and you can easily plan your trip in the autumn to the conference or just decided to walk around in New-York.

Everything is quite clear with flight tickets:
— economy: $600
— economy and luggage: $750
— economy + luggage and extra legroom: $850
— business: $3000, because there is a different lounge, a different boarding line, may be a separate transfer to the plane, there are no or fewer lines, different meals, more comfortable seat, and you can also stretch your legs and sleep (that can be a delicate condition for a traveler in general). What if you choose a training program?

If there are two courses with more or less same logical content, then, in most times, they have been compared in view of the Program duration: this one takes 24 hours (yeah, about three academic days), and this one takes 32 hours (and this is 4 academic days).

In this case, training is a tool, with which you want to achieve some result. Most likely, you want to start/learn to do something in a different way or to try in the process and understand, whether the training solves your real task or not. And the duration of training is only one feature of this tool.

Just to give an example (probably, men will understand more): a razor can have one blade: or may have three. Shaving will not get three times better, but it will be more effective and better for the same number of actions, or skin irritation will reduce thanks to the faster shaving.

Which features one can highlight in the training to identify and underline differences between “economy” and “business-class”? Let’s try. We do not aim at comparing our training format with the one we can find in the other courses on Runet, because, commonly a proposed training is much different as concerning duration, and price and content. We have taken an average team management course provided by other Schools and would like to show you how trainings can differ in format.
