Seeking Visionaries for The Delphi Survey


The Delphi Survey
Calling all industry professionals, media experts and “pro ams” with experience/expertise in publishing, music, broadcast, online, mobile, news, film, and all of the emerging forms which cross these traditional boundaries, to share their vision of the future of media, and to explore the many uncertainties which will shape that future.

2020 Media Futures (2020mediafutures.ca) is an ambitious, multi-industry strategic foresight project designed to understand and envision what media may look like in the year 2020.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE…

The Delphi Survey! This is a two-round online survey, designed to seek consensus from subject-matter experts (such as yourself) on issues which are unsettled, unpredictable, or uncertain, but yet could have major impacts on the media landscape of the year 2020.

Round two of the survey is open today! It will only take about 30 minutes to complete.

Note: The Delphi survey will not ask you to recount your perspective on past or current events, but will capture your views on where you think things are going.

By participating in 2020 Media Futures, you’ll be contributing your vision to an innovative research project which will help build capacity and drive innovation in Ontario’s Creative Cluster by helping companies and organizations to ‘future-proof’ themselves, preparing for opportunities and challenges brought on by the rapid evolution of media.

Through the practice of “strategic foresight,” the project will enable stakeholders to better manage uncertainty through deeper understanding and anticipation of change.

If you know of others who you think might be interested in participating in the Delphi, please pass them the link: 2020mediafutures.ca/delphisurvey
