Jürgen er en ildsjel som får til mye av lite, han er nettverksorientert og løfter alltid fram andre underveis. Dette har gjort ham til en av de aller fremste innenfor digitaliseringsprosesser i kommune-Norge.

Jürgen Spindlers´s tips for enthusiasts in local government

  • Make sure you have good helpers, and that you have competent people around you.
  • Keep it simple. A complex language and many acronyms prevents understanding and communication.
  • Plan with all parties involved: politicians, direct users, bureaucrats and inhabitants.
  • Visualise the possibilities, think lifecycle span when planning. Construction costs are only 10%.
  • Learn from others, ask around. Standardise the demands for digital requirements to all suppliers.
