#095: The actual meaning of John Boyd's OODA Loop

Released Tuesday, 27th October 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
On today’s episode, Greg and Brian are doing a breakdown of Colonel John Boyd’s OODA Loop. Some of you may have heard of this before but for those that haven’t the OODA loop stands for Observe Orient, Decide, Act and it is a decision-making process that can be used effectively in rapidly unfolding situations. The reason they are discussing this highly complex decision-making model is that it is often misrepresented or oversimplified to the point of it becoming cliché. 
Brian and Greg cover a number of topics in this episode  including psychological intimidation & De-escalation, information theory, decision theory, and what Greg refers to as the “Willy Wonka Effect.”
