Red42 premieres new "Quick Start" course format on 29 August 2023

On 29 August, a new Red42 course format will premiere: The 2-hour, online, unrecorded "Quick Start" format sessions will be hosted in English by Red42 Niels Pflaeging. The first Quick Start session will be about Relative Targets – the social technology published by Red42 in early 2021. In the words of Niels Pflaeging, who created the approach, Relative Targets is "the world's best, most elegant and most ethical way of designing and running performance systems. It is the antidote to laborous, demotivating, obnoxious and wasteful performance tools based on target-setting, incentives and planning. So I believe this social technology will come as a blessing to many organizations - everywhere in the world."

The Relative Targets approach was pioneered by high-performing industry leaders like Swedish bank Handelsbanken, Toyota, W.L.Gore, Aldi, Buurtzorg, Semco and Ahlsell. It was first systematically described by the Beyond Budgeting Round Table, which Niels co-headed as a research director, between 2003 and 2007. In 2021, Niels decided to make the concept more easily applicable everywhere, and codified it into an open source social technology that can be freely used, even commercially.
