OODA Loop

This practical model outlines a four point decision loop that supports quick, effective and proactive decision making.

  • Observe – collect current information,
  • Orient – analyse the information you have and update your current reality,
  • Decide – what will be your course of action,
  • Act – follow through on your decision.

With this approach the faster you can move through the phases the better and when you have acted you can repeat the loop by observing the results of your actions etc.
