Default John Boyd and OODA loops... and how to apply it to business...

John Boyd was a fighter pilot in the Korean war, and was a Commander during the Vietnam War. He won numerous decorations as part of his service.

After his retirement, he continued to work at the Pentagon as a consultant...

What John Boyd is most famous for today is his teaching on OODA loops.

OODA stands for Observe - Orient - Decide - Act...

It sounds simple... But it's not as simple as it seems, if you really want to apply it...

He credits this to how he was able to be a great fighter pilot - and teach others to be great fighter pilots...

But it applies to so many different areas...

I've been reading about it for 20 years. But only now do I feel like I truly understand it...

And it's because of this article...

I thought I'd share it, for those who are interested!

It explains many applications of OODA loops - and how to use it to beat your competition... In the military, in sport, in chess, and in business...

(The author of this article, Roderic Yapp, is himself a former officer in the Royal Marines - which is the British equivalent of the Marines...)

The OODA Loop: From the Battlefield to Business Success

Best wishes!
