RAND Corporation developed the Delphi method in the 1950s, originally to forecast the impact of technology on warfare. The method entails a group of experts who anonymously reply to questionnaires and subsequently receive feedback in the form of a statistical representation of the "group response," after which the process repeats itself. It allows experts involved in a discussion to converge on agreement about a project. The goal is to reduce the range of responses and arrive at something closer to expert consensus. The Delphi Method has been globally adopted and is being used in nearly all industries.
Run Real-Time Delphi surveys, Classic (Multi-Round) Delphi surveys or Intelligent surveys (Real-Time Delphi survey carried out over multiple survey rounds).
The big advantage of the Real-Time Delphi survey is that it is a “roundless” Delphi. The respondents participate by filling out an online questionnaire, and the results - both numerical and qualitative - are updated and displayed as responses are recorded in “real time.” Respondents can revisit the questionnaire as many times as they want. Each time, they are shown their own responses as well as the updated answers of the others, and they can revise and change their own inputs based on this feedback.
Real-Time Delphi surveys allow collaborative decision-making based on group consensus. It is a process that connects survey participants and enables them with real-time knowledge transfer, feedback and analysis.Delphi Studies
