Delphi technique

The Delphi Method is a research forecasting method/technique that aims to reveal underlying trends by producing consensus among experts of a panel. In a typical Delphi exercise, each panellist expert is asked to judge assumptions made by other experts (in two or more cycles, depending on the resources), until a clear direction in terms of experts’ opinions is reached. In CIPTEC, Delphi was applied with the aim of identifying the most crucial trends that could influence the Public Transport sector.
