more OODA loops

Scott Sonnon on Col John Boyd and the OODA Loop

What could a coach for cage fighting teach the MBA about business?

A lot.

Scott gives a great example of applying common sense to the world of competitive cage matches, when he explains,

"The opponent who cycles more slowly through the OODA Loop begins to feel farther and farther behind, like being sucked down a vortex: his options seem fewer, his reactions slower and less effective, his concentration scattered and his focus dim, his energy drains away and his success less likely (he feels more hopeless.)"

Good stuff.
