A strategic thinking framework developed by Colonel John Boyd, USAF. Since the theater of war is constantly changing, OODA treats decision-making as aproblem. You're constantly measuring and readjusting to trend toward your goal — which might be moving.
OODA values agility as a strategic advantage.
- What phase of the OODA loop am I in now? Refocus tactics on that phase.
- What are my go-to-tools for observation? What tools do others use?
- How do I orient when faced with a new problem space?
- Is it better to make decisions quickly or carefully? OODA encourages rapid loops.
To understand is to know what to do.
- Ludwig Wittgenstein
