Delphi was invented by RAND corporation for purposes of forecasting.

Delphi techniques are structured group communication processes in which complex issues where knowledge is uncertain and incomplete are evaluated by experts using in an iterative process.

The main purpose of the Delphi method is to encourage these experts to settle on a mutual agreement and to establish a group consensus.

Aggregated group answers from previous questionnaires are supplied with each new survey, and the experts being questioned are able to reconsider their judgments on this basis, revising them where appropriate.

Useful for developing priorities, policy and forecasts about the future.
