    1. 1. Finding the Future Faster™What are the possible implications of playing the “Choking Game”? Joel Barker’s Implications Wheel® Identify Opportunities. Reduce Risks. Improve Outcomes. © Copyright, 2005-2012, Joel A. Barker. All Rights Reserved.
    2. 2. Joel Barker’s Implications Wheel® The Implications Wheel® is a Strategic Exploration Tool that explores theimplications, positive and negative, of an issue, in a collaborative process where “every voice is heard.” © Copyright, 2005-2012, Joel A. Barker. All Rights Reserved.
    3. 3. In a complex environment, the implications of a decision or event may not be immediately obvious. Every decision or event has immediate implications. These are 1st order. The 1st order consequencestrigger additional consequences. These are 2nd order. 2nd order consequences triggeranother ripple of consequences. These are 3rd order. © Joel Barker / Implication Wheel® © Joel Barker 3

    5. 5. The Choking Game• Choking game refers to intentionally cutting off oxygen to the brain with the goal of inducing temporary euphoria.• Mostly boys and girls between the ages of 9-16. Estimated as many as 250 to 1,000 young people die in the United States each year playing some variant of the choking game.• Recent college survey found the following statistics: - 16% of students said theyd played the game. - On average, students first played the game at age 14. - 90% of students who had played the game learned about it from friends, and most students first played in a group setting. © Copyright, 2005-2012, Joel A.

    6. 6. An Implications Wheel® explorationfirst identifies “first order”implications – “what might happennext?”This exploration identified 13 “first-order” implications. 1st Order Topic © Copyright, 2005-2011, Joel A. Barker. All Rights Reserved.
    7. 7. An Implications Wheel® exploration thenidentifies “second order” implications foreach of the “first-orders.”This exploration identified 65 “second-order” implications. 2 Order nd Topic © Copyright, 2005-2011, Joel A. Barker. All Rights Reserved.
    8. 8. The exploration thenidentifies “third-order”implications for each ofthe “second-order” 3 Orderrdimplications.This explorationidentified 325 “third-order” implications. Topic © Copyright, 2005-2011, Joel A. Barker. All Rights Reserved.
    9. 9. Each implication is scored from a specified“point-of-view” on two factors – in a processwhere “majority rules” but minority reports arerespected and reported. © Copyright, 2005-2011, Joel A. Barker. All Rights Reserved.
    10. 10. Joel Barker’s Implications Wheel®What are the possible implications of playing the “Choking Game”? Here are five “arcs” from this exploration. If you would like to receive more information on this exploration, please e-mail Andrew.Schreier@strategicexploration.com Scoring “Point-of-View:” Adolescent (13-18) who is aware of choking game (through peers, social media, Internet) but has never played before. * © Copyright, 2005-2012, Joel A. Barker. All Rights Reserved.
    11. 11. Here’s a “Summary” showing the Highly Likely Significant NegativeImplications for one of the “first orders.”
    12. 12. Here’s a “Summary” showing the Highly Likely Significant NegativeImplications for one of the “first orders.”
    13. 13. Joel Barker’s Implications Wheel®• The Implications Wheel is a “decision-enhancing” tool for individuals and organizations.• We “interrogate” the exploration to answer: – What actions can be taken to avoid the highly negative, highly likely implications? – What actions can be taken to increase the likelihood of highly positive, less likely implications? – Are there implications that appear frequently in the exploration, indicating something more likely to occur – prompted by different preceding events.? © Copyright, 2005-2012, Joel A. Barker. All Rights Reserved.
    14. 14. Joel Barker’s Implications Wheel®• It is interesting in this exploration on the “Choking Game” that the same implication is scored very differently on different “arcs,” depending on the preceding implication. – If a person has successfully played the “Choking Game” it appears the following implications, even if negative, will be scored as less undesirable and/or less likely – if they had a bad experience, the same implication following was scored as more undesirable and more likely. © Copyright, 2005-2012, Joel A.
