The Delphi Method is similar to questionnaire research. The Delphi Method aims to forecast unpredictable or unclear future trends and changes of phenomenon.  If you use the Delphi Method, you ask a set of questions to experts of the researched topic. After a certain period of time, you ask the same set of questions to the same experts. You summarise and discuss the experts’ predictions and guesses.
