What is a Delphi Survey?

A Delphi survey is a structured group interaction process that is directed in "rounds" of opinion collection and feedback1. Opinion collection is achieved by conducting a series of surveys using questionnaires. The result of each survey will be presented to the group and the questionnaire used in the next round is built upon the result of the previous round2.
