The Delphi technique is a useful method of obtaining group consensus.
However, « consensus » is not usually defined when this technique is used.
This paper describes a study in which two panels of experts (registered nurses who were nurse managers or involved in management education) were asked to identify the competencies expected of first-line nurse managers using the Delphi technique.
The results from both panels are compared.
Prior to the commencement of the Delphi rounds a baseline mean of 3.00 ( « agree » on the Likert scale used) was set for the inclusion of items.
The level at which consensus was achieved was defined as the point at which 10% or less of the 168 competencies provided to the panel moved above or below this point of inclusion.
