At the risk of incomprehensibility (another fine attribute of the
twitterverse), I direct folks attention to a very precious
early-childhood-education technique that I believe can be understood as
isomorphic to the Delphi technique: High/Scope (or more colloquially,
"Plan-Do-Review"). Some might also be familiar with the American
Management Association tool which used a three-to-four part planning and
review process to make decisions based on management and worker interaction
in a Delphi-related process.

Stream of consciousness beckons to *Forms of Intellectual and Ethical
Development in the College Years* (William Perry) and its requirement that
college students internalize the relativistic aspects of each of these
three techniques.

Diversionary reading:
