Consequence wheel

Consequence wheels are used to explore wide ranging consequences that can follow from actions, issues or trends in the present. Look at the example below.

Decide on a sustainability issue that is affecting your school for investigation. Place the focus in the centre of the consequence wheel. Then, explore the focus by asking the question “What are the immediate consequences?”

Write the immediate consequences in the inner ring around the main idea. Link each consequence to the main idea with a single line. This indicates that they are first order consequences. Continue exploring second, third and forth order consequences using the outer circles.
