In today’s show, Cook and Kurgan explain the Delphi Technique. The Delphi Technique can be defined asa calculated method some administrators (such as school superintendents), committees (such as a school committee or school building committee), group facilitators and special interest groups (some ballot question groups and less-than-honorable architectural firms) use to achieve “consensus.” Through the use of the Delphi Technique and the promotion of an “us” vs “them” mentality among the citizens of a community, dissenting voices are identified, marginalized and discredited and the (often hidden) agendas of various groups and controlling individuals promoted.
