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.
