Control

Web3 will automate complex decision making. Engineers need to make sure they close the control loop to create virtuous cycles.

Control Systems

Evolve standard procedures (algorithms) that help humans implement better decisions, then work to engineer routine to automate the process and alleviate cognitive load (decision fatigue).

Standardise to spread operational wisdom to create ann improved platform for growth.

OODA Loop

Metrics

Identify corrective action performance benchmarks and map to standard operating procedures.

  • List key processes
  • List scheduled jobs
  • List triggered jobs
  • Map processes to jobs
Take control of the thought loop

When you have a group of people that have well practiced OODA Loops for the right problems, then you have an elite team that can thrive in chaos.

If you invest heavily in a few smart people, you have a very small learning surface exposed: there is only so much even very bright people can learn at one time. Whereas when the entire team meets a certain standard for competence, there is a very large learning surface exposed and the team is able to absorb more information

Dashboards

Make decisions before loss causing situations arise. Good news takes care of itself.

  • Set decision triggers
  • Link triggers to processes
  • Link processes to people
  • Dashboards must tell a story
  • Worst first

Take care of the downside and the upside will take care of itself.
