Go to the Shell Scenarios webpage. Once you have navigated to the site, watch the “Shell New Lens Scenarios” video (1:38) found on that page. (If you have trouble locating the video, it can also be found on YouTube.) I found this YouTube link to work best.
After watching the video, read the two scenarios, Mountains and Oceans, as well as pp. 22–24 in your textbook. I have already attached the file from pp.22-24. (Mountains and Oceans is a PDF file found on the Shell Scenarios webpage.)
Then, in your initial post, consider the following:
- Which of these scenarios do you think is most likely to occur? Defend your choice by analyzing it in the context of the deep historical forces outlined in the textbook.
- How does Shell utilize business teams in this process?
- What advice would you give Shell to prepare for its future to succeed in the face of likely governmental impacts?
