Strategies: Definitions and Examples
We will use the following definition:
Strategic action promotes strategic advantage, and / or executes strategic plans.
Strategic planning is a high level plan to achieve a goal in a situation of uncertainty.
Strategic vision is intuitive, high-value imaginative creative thinking about the future.
1. Mindfulness / meta-awareness
Applying OODA loop involves being meta-aware of your own OODA loop, as well as how it can penetrate other OODA loops or other OODA loops!
2. Mindware strategy
OODA loop Military strategist and U.S. Air Force Colonel John Boyd refers to the cycle of observation, orientation, decision, and decision-making during dog fights as a fighter pilot.
The idea is that decisions are made in a cycle of observation-Orient-Decide-Act. An important element of this loop from a strategic point of view is the ‘Oriental’. Orientation is based on culture, genetics, previous experience, ability to analyze and understand (IQ), and schema or mental model / concept of reality. Orientation shapes the way we observe, the way we make decisions, the way we act.
According to Boyd, an entity (whether an individual, a group, or an organization) can process this cycle faster, observe and respond to events faster than the adversary, allowing the adversary to “enter” the decision cycle and gain advantage. Can Entering your opponent’s loop means you’ll complete your loop processing faster than them.
The key is to obscure your motives and at the same time make them unexpected to your opponent while you are clarifying his motives. That is, work at a fast pace to create a rapidly changing situation that prevents your opponent from adapting or reacting to those changes and that suppresses or destroys his or her consciousness. Thus, a hodgepodge of confusion and chaos responds more or less to situations or activities that seem uncertain, vague, or understandable to him.
Boyd conceived of OODA strategy and zero-sum competition in terms of opponents – from playing something to involving other nations on multiple war fronts. You can apply the OODA loop model to more general situations (seen as adaptive ‘systems’), many of which are not zero-sum. The purpose here is to read Developed dynamics In a situation (such as how a market develops, or how an organization changes), the way the system ‘observes’ and ‘orients’ before working, so that one can synchronize with it ‘in time’ Make no mistake) and in some cases ‘outpace’ it – such as when one expects a change in market dynamics or employment opportunities.
Exercise: Try to identify situations in your own life that could be identified as OODA loops, and try to figure out what feeds are in each component of the loop. Consider what you need to do to ‘get inside’ to get an advantage in the OODA loop of the situation.
