This working paper explores how the Delphi method can be applied to selecting indicators for skills planning. The first part of the paper presents a brief overview of the Delphi method and the underlying theory, including definitions of the method, its characteristics, its strengths and limitations, and the standard approach to its implementation. The second part proposes how the Delphi method can best be applied to the selection of core labour market or skills planning indicators in South Africa. The Delphi output will be used to guide the main working group in the selection of Key Indicators for Skills Planning (KISP).
