A method for obtaining independent forecasts from an expert panel over two or more rounds, with summaries of the anonymous forecasts (and perhaps reasons for them) provided after each round. Delphi has been widely used in business. By applying well-researched principles, Delphi provides more accurate forecasts than unstructured groups (Rowe and Wright 1999). The process can be adapted for use in face-to-face group meetings, and is then called mini-Delphi or Estimate-Talk-Estimate (ETE). Rowe and Wright (2001) provide principles for the use of the Delphi technique.
