The Delphi and Alinkski Techniques

Have you attended an IEP  meeting lately where it seemed like there was a hidden agenda and you weren't told what it was? You must read up on the Delphi and Alinski Techniques and learn how to diffuse them. This technique is being used frequently to achieve consensus at IEP meetings and at community meetings that are used to set school board policy. If you do not understand how these are used to achieve "consensus" - i.e. make everyone agree on a hidden agenda - you may not fully understand why IEP meetings do not go the way you intend them to go.

Thanks,

All you have to do is a Google search using the search terms "Delphi technique" and you will find more than you ever wanted to know. As always, make sure the internet source you use is valid and reputable.
