Tactical Agility

In Brief
Practice and Optimisation

2. Optimize Agility – Embrace uncertainty. Track results, detach and re-evaluate effectiveness, reprioritise and decisively adapt.
Don't get locked into the wrong side of an OODA loop.

The OODA loop is the cycle observe–orient–decide–act, developed by military strategist and United States Air Force Colonel John Boyd. Boyd applied the concept to the combat operations process, often at the operational level during military campaigns. It is now also often applied to understand commercial operations and learning processes.

With the objectives in mind: reassess.

Detach, re-evaluate effectiveness, reprioritise and adapt.
