The Delphi Method
Perhaps, the Delphi Method may save your day! It is a virtual system fo group decision-making. It enables members to vote on the solutions for real problems generated by a group facilitator.
Real time. All the problems are real and not hypothetical. This means that when a member votes, they must be aware of the consequences of their votes.
Voting and scaling. The scaling is determined by a simple summation that indicates where the decision is headed. Members can change their votes.
Problem Generator – identify existing problems and highlight them
Solution Generator – identify alternative courses of action and what to do
Discussion Forum – each solution has discussion on merits and demerits
Voting – open to members and members are free to change their minds
Feedback – this summarises a group ‘s decision.
