"Why do some places grow while others are shrinking? What are the most important driving forces behind increases in the number of inhabitants and jobs? How can places affect their own growth? This book is written for those who want to understand how structural forces affect the development of their locale and how one can create growth through increased attractiveness. Most Norwegian municipalities, cities, regions and counties try to stimulate growth and development in their localities. They want growth in the population and more jobs. This book describes the main features of regional development in Norway since 2000. Telemark Research Institute has proposed a new model, the attractiveness model, to explain the growth and development of places. This book explains how this model works, how it is constructed and how it can be used to understand the forces behind regional development."

"This final chapter aggregates experiences and findings from the other
chapters of the book. The book’s overall research question is as follows: What are
the basic structures of the concept of samhandling under risk and how can samhandling
be created when the conditions are unpredictable? A number of SUR (Samhandling
Under Risk) structures are derived based on semantic theory construction,
and these are described in an overall definition and visualized in a model, which
in turn can form the basis of a SUR theory. These are organized under educational,
organizational and operational structures, as three superior competencies needed
to facilitate effective SUR. The essence is that there is a different basis for this type
of assessment than with traditional risk analysis, in order to achieve good samhandling
under risk and unforeseen conditions. This is concerned with what is needed
when little or nothing goes according to plan. It is then necessary to emphasize
on such matters more in depth and addition address other factors to achieve SUR
through samhandling where the conditions are predictable - where completed plans
and clear objectives work. For the learning level, valuation of inaccurate knowledge
and qualities is required to extract information from the disorder. For the
organizational level, it is important to create and/or maintain shared leadership
and at the operative level, improvisation is essential. When working with a SUR
paradigm, one must be able to accept unclear goals, be prepared to lose control
and create room for surprises. Leaders with SUR skills will be required to prepare organizations for this. Training and SUR should be incorporated into strategic
plans, management training and leadership development. An expansion of established
pedagogical models is also needed to achieve this aim. Invisible learning is
one approach. Samhandling does not simply happen in a vacuum, and the chapter
encourages further SUR research in a global perspective, where different languages
and cultures can contribute to enhanced understanding of SUR issues. As a starting
point for such an approach, we explore how the term is expressed in the Japanese
language. A more global approach to SUR structures can contribute to a deeper
understanding of what is needed, to avoid unwanted misunderstandings and crises,
learn from each other and solve complex and unforeseen situations through
