Do you OODA

McCain flies his campaign past Obama Following the 2008 Presidential Election? Then you must have heard references to Colonel John Boyd's OODA Loop. This article by Michael Barone is one of the best explanations on the net. Plus, it wins extra points for using a current news affair as the case study.
"Then they failed to Orient. Palin, as her convention and subsequent appearances have shown, powerfully reinforces two McCain themes: She is a maverick who has taken on the leaders of her own party (as Obama never has in Chicago), and she has a record on energy of favoring drilling and exploiting American resources." —Michael Barone
For those idiots not-so-well-informed persons that think that Boyd was "all about war" or that his tactics are only applicable to war, you MUST see this four part series on YouTube™ featuring actual footage of Colonel John Boyd. Talking about Shingo and Ohno, Lean Manufacturing (Toyota Production System), as well as "Just in Time" to name a few business concepts that Boyd was extremely familiar with, and quite knowledgeable. Caution, he does use some profanity: Part I: Part II: Part III: Part IV: So, regardless your preference in the up coming election, this article on townhall dot com does a great job of explaining why I preach Boyd and his OODA Loop everywhere I speak. -ski P.S. Need a keynote speaker for your next biz function? Have OODA, will Travel! Give me a call. P.P.S. Sorry, USA only. ---- Jeff 'SKI' Kinsey, Jonah Dover, OH | Hilton Head Island, SC | Las Vegas, NV Phone: (330) 432-3533 tag: ©2008 LLC. All rights reserved.
