Futurist Joel Barker's Implications Wheel was used to explore four key issues following Hurricane Katrina.  Over 400 citizens were involved in different explorations of key issues. A sample from one of these is posted in the "examples" section of the website.  This Scoop.It topic will identify possible issues that could be, should be explored.


The implications of Hurricane Sandy are many -- they're significant -- and they need to be explored for both the short and long-term positives and negatives.

3 Steps to Becoming a “Purposeful Brand” like Premier Inn, Southwest, and Zappos | CustomerThink

3 Steps to Becoming a “Purposeful Brand” like Premier Inn, Southwest, and Zappos | CustomerThink | Hurricane Sandy Exploring Implications | Scoop.it
One of the big news stories of 2012 was Hurricane Sandy. This ‘storm of the century’ caused 157 deaths and left 8 million people on the eastern seaboard of the USA without power for several days.


It was interesting to see how brands responded to this event. Some, like fashion retailers The Gap, Urban Outfitters and American Apparel, saw this as a sales opportunity and quickly launched campaigns like this one:

American Apparel targeted customers in the nine stricken states who were ‘bored’ at home and invited them to visit American Apparel for a 20% off deal.

Not unsurprisingly, consumers reacted with anger at this commercialisation of, what was, a terrible event for many people, and twitter and other social media channels were buzzing with outraged customers voicing their opinions about the apparent lack of sensitivity.
