Politics, Management, the OODA Loop - Getting inside your opponents loop

Getting inside your opponents loop means that you complete your loop processing quicker than they do. Ideally you should complete you full cycle while they are still in the orientate stage so that they get stuck in the observe - orientate phases: Always assessing, never deciding, never acting. Their loop is OO-OO-OO.

Later postings will elaborate on the four phases: Observe-Orientate-Decide-Act, and flush out the complexities and nuances that Boyd's analysis provides to managers, project managers, and politicians, not just warriors.
