"Change happens slow, steady, and then fast, and then very fast. And then it jumps. It'll have jumps, you'll be smooth. And you'll just have a jump. Smooth again." - Changes are dynamic, and complexity requires emphasizing the importance of adaptability and embracing new ideas and approaches. "We hope a lot of young employees will come to our area…a lot to play with and experiment with." The municipality's vision of attracting young talent and fostering a culture of innovation and experimentation involving both employees and young citizens in shaping Molde's future.
