Summary

This report discusses two existing devices for social policy formulation, details their current shortcomings, and reports on modifications designed to improve them as tools for policymakers and institutional planners. The two tools are Delphi -- with its modification, Focus Delphi -- and Cross-Impact Matrix -- with its modification, the Cross-Purpose Matrix. The Focus Delphi is a tool to help planners identify existing consensus and dissensus among various groups in society. The process systematically collects perceptions of interested publics and keeps separated their responses about the goals and needs under examination. The Cross-Purpose Matrix brings the proposed strategies of the several goal advocates into the open to aid priority assessment. This process arrays the competing goals in a matrix and forces an examination of the relative value of each with reference to all others. Related documents are EA 004 240 and EA 004 241. (RA)
