El Metodo Delphi

Listed author(s):
  • Ignacio Vélez-Pareja


Esta es una nota de estudio donde se presenta un método para lograr consenso en grupos conocido como el método Delphi o Délfico. Este método es útil para cerrar la brecha entre una situación de desconocimiento total de un hecho y una apreciación calificada del mismo. Se presenta el origen del nombre, asociado al oráculo de Delphos en Grecia y se define y se describen el origen y la forma de operar. Se anotan sus ventajas, elementos básicos y las críticas y objeciones más comunes. Así mismo, se relacionan los usos más conocidos del método. La última parte, concluye. No pretende ser una nota novedosa, sino es una actualización bibliográfica sobre el tema. In this teaching note I explain a method to obtain consensus among the members of a group. This method is the well known Delphi Method. This method is useful to close the gap between the total ignorance regarding a fact or situation and a disciplined guess. I present the origin of the name, that is associated to the Delphos Oracle in Greece and I define the origin and operational procedure as well. I mention the advantages, the basic elements and the most common critiques and objections found in the literature. Finally, I present the most common uses of the method. In the last section I conclude. This note is not intended to present something really new. It is just an actualized bibliographic review.
