DELPHI PROCESS (DELPHI METHOD, DELPHI TECHNIQUE)

A method of allowing a group of individuals to deal with a complex problem as a single unit, with the goal of achieving a consensus. A typical Delphi process could involved distributing a questionnaire to participants so that they could rank problems in order of priority, summarizing the results, together with another questionnaire. As these steps are repeated, the distribution of individual responses narrows, and the participants move toward a consensus or to polarization. (TRB)
