Weekend Building Blocks: The Illinois Model's Most Read of 2020
There's no value in collecting blocks unless you're connecting them to build something awesome!
I haven't posted a Weekend Building Blocks post in quite some time. Actually, the last version was my 2019 year summary you can find here!
Simply, I took a different approach to sharing ideas and thoughts in 2020, with beefed-up posting in LinkedIn. The response was terrific! As such, blogging took a backseat.
Regardless, I managed to pump out 24 posts on this website this year, with the Most Read ranked here:
- OODAZoom 01: Thursday, June 04th. A two (2)-hour video conversation on John Boyd's OODA. This was the most visited post of the year!
- The Dangerous Gap Before Deadly Force. On policy, neck restraints, and cultural issues with police use of force.
- Police Officer Defense Against TASER. Intertwined with a real life incident, the factors that cops should consider when faced with a TASER used against them.
- Situational Awareness: Passive or Active? How do you get information? Do you wait for it to come to you...or do you go hunting for it?
- Cynefin: The Tool That Doesn't "Do" Anything. Tools do things, right? Well not Cynefin. But it does help us see. And that's pretty useful.
I hope you'll poke around these popular posts from 2020. And if you like them, share them around!
Lastly, there was some interest in the #OODAzoom hashtag on LinkedIn. It got deep into Boyd's OODA stuff. Well beyond what's in the business blogs.
As always, I appreciate your readership, followership, & support in 2020.
Let's continue in 2021...full steam ahead!
