In this study three strong methodological approaches are combined including The Delphi methodology, the Crowdsourcing Approach and the Boston Consulting Matric Approach, while proposing an extension to conventional Delphi methodology, which we name as the Crowdsourcing Delphi. This new approach is better and probably more efficient version of conventional tool package of the Delphi methodology. Thus, the contribution adds new understanding to modern innovation management based on expert evaluations, and in some special consumer driven cases, on laymen evaluations. The study will have many practical implications for the use of crowdsourcing methodology. All the key stakeholders of the Quartet Helix (university researchers, corporations, the government and customers), which want to utilize modern crowdsourcing techniques, could benefit from this study.
