Implications Wheel - "Finding the Future Faster" | Hurricanes Florence -  Irma - Harvey - Sandy Exploring Implications | Scoop.it

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.
