A pilot Delphi study was carried out and its design is outlined here. The number, characteristics and responses to the Delphi rounds are then discussed. The processing of data at Rounds One and Two follows including the decisions made to adapt statements between each round. Consensus was reached after Round Two and details are provided of how this was achieved. The definition of consensus is discussed and its interpretation leading onto the definition of Fuzzy Delphi variable functions. The chapter concludes with a discussion of unforeseen obstacles and how these were overcome and finally the choice made of variables from the Fuzzy Delphi process.
