OODA

Observe, Orient, Decide, Act.

Learned about this is a book on Scrum project organization.

Is there a philosophy devoted to getting things done? At my work, we call it "Getting Shit Done". Our executives put a lot of effort, currently, into thinking about how to be productive, but I'm not so sure they spend much time on the "Orient" stage.

In contrast, I think scientists do a lot of "observe", while philosophers spend a lot of time on "orient".

Does breaking these tasks up into specialities serve society well? Or should we get them to interact more?

I think this has applications to lots of things, including politics, but was curious to get some casual opinions.

When I have taught processes that have sub-sections, I overcome this risk in two ways:

1. Continually reference the ultimate objective of the process.
2. Do not present the sub-sections as distinct entities, but rather as convenient sub-divisions of a continuous process.

I feel any other approach rather misses the point.
