OODA loop | session 4.4

The OODA loop is a concept and an aid introduced by John Boyd to help improve the decision-making process. The four steps require a person to observe their surrounding, familiarize themselves with their surroundings by making mental notes, and decide on the best action.

The trainer may emphasize that making a timely decision and acting on it can improve one’s safety, as well as the safety of their colleagues and family.
