Delphi method

Definition of Delphi

“The Delphi method is based on structural surveys and makes use of the intuitive available information of the participants, who are mainly experts. Therefore, it de-livers qualitative as well as quantitative results and has beneath its explorative, predictive even normative elements. There is not the one Delphi methodology but the applications are diverse. There is agreement that Delphi is an expert survey in two or more ’rounds’ in which in the second and later rounds of the survey the results of the previous round are given as feedback. Therefore, the experts answer from the second round on under the influence of their colleagues’ opinions. Thus, the Delphi method is a ‘relatively strongly structured group communication process, in which matters, on which naturally unsure and incomplete knowledge is available, are judged upon by experts'” [1]
