Are you teaching the OODA Loop?
Are you practicing the OODA Loop?
Do you teach your students to perform the OODA Loop?
Do you know what an OODA Loop is?
I confess that I heard the term for the first time a few weeks ago while listening to Reid Hoffman's Masters of Scale.
I encountered the OODA Loop for only the second time when I recently watched "What Successful Entrepreneurs Know," a video by Amy Wilkinson produced for Stanford Business School's Insights.
In an age of exponential change--when "nobody really knows what is going to happen next," to quote Hoffman--schools that thrive will form students who:
- learn how to ask the timeless questions (e.g., "Who am I? Who do I want to be? What do I believe in? What is my purpose?" etc.)
- practice entrepreneurial skillsets and mindsets (e.g., "What kind of problem is this? What strengths do I bring to this problem, and how can I complement my skills with those of my team? Who will do what, by when?" etc.)
Are your teachers ready to observe the signs of exponential change; orient themselves to this new reality; decide what and how to teach differently; and then act accordingly?
