Assorted Scenario Planning links collected by Brian Reithel

3.  You may remember Jim Autry mentioning Betty Flowers from UT-Austin.
    She is on their English Department faculty.
    She is currently on-leave from UT and her email address shows her
    working at Shell.  One web page that I found showed her as the
    editor of "Shell's Global Scenarios 1992-2020"

    Here's an article from the International Journal of Futures Studies
    STORYING CORPORATE FUTURES: THE SHELL SCENARIOS
    which contains a quote from the cover page of the volume that Betty
    Flowers edited.
