The Delphi Method is a seven-step iterative survey process that uses experts to answer questions concerning, for example, the future of homeland security and its security policies. This particular method may become a critical tool in the way you choose to conduct your thesis research. We will introduce the method’s origins and development, when its application is appropriate, how to conduct the steps of the Delphi process, and offer examples in homeland security. This session has been designed to give you a brief overview of the method, but additional sources and references are included at the conclusion of the module to provide extra examples of studies using Delphi. When you’ve finished viewing this module, we hope you’ll be able to describe the purpose of the method, provide a brief overview of the process, and write a research question that would used the Delphi method.
