The Panel

Post-Kickoff Meeting Iterative Process Steps:

Step One. First web-based session

  • Participants will be asked to allocate growth across large subareas using a control total.

Step Two. Compilation of results

  • Following each web-based session, the results of the input from the community leaders will be compiled and analyzed.
  • A map reflecting the results will be produced and placed on the website for use in the next iteration of the process.
  • Community leaders will consider the results of the entire group, and then provide additional input.

Step Three. Additional web-based sessions

  • During each iteration of the web-based sessions, participants will be able to view the history of their own responses compared to the statistically determined group response from the previous round.
  • In the web-based iterative sessions, the participants will re-allocate growth to the subareas based on results from the previous Delphi session.
  • Participants will also be asked to rank growth factors for each subarea again.

Step Four. Consensus and final results

  • After all web-based iterations of the process have been completed, final results will be compiled that will indicate the consensus of the community experts who participated in the Delphi Process.
  • Results will be posted on the website.
