Stratēģijas mākslas cienītāji un praktiķi novērtēs pulkveža Džona Boida (OODA cikla teorijas autors) fanu veikto analīzi par Maķedonijas Aleksandra (Lielā) kara uzvarām, kas apkopota tēžu veidā:


1. Recon before you fight: know the terrain and get the enemy laydown before you commit.
2. Make a plan based on the above and build in flexibility with a well-placed reserve.
3.  Put yourself at the decisive point and know what you’re looking for and what decisions it will trigger when you see it.
4. Place your most capable subordinate at the most dangerous place that you will not be.
5.  Seize the initiative when and where you can: move first if you can, change the terms of battle if you can’t.
6.  Make sure your subordinates know the scheme of maneuver.
7.  Make sure your subordinate commanders know the decisions you are looking to make and what triggers them–they might see something you miss during the fight.
8.  Don’t attack on the fly; Alexander’s generals wanted to go in upon arrival, but he made them wait and plan
9. When the conditions at the decisive point are right, don’t hesitate.  These are windows that open and close.
10.  Don’t be unnerved by enemy actions; unless they are incompetent, they will surprise you.  Don’t over-react to a surprise that is actually irrelevant.  The Persian Cavalry breakthrough could have ruined Alexander’s plans had he panicked at the thought of enemy forces to his rear…he didn’t.
11.  Be aware of the entire battlefield through constant communications.  Had Alexander abandoned his struggling left flank to pursue Darius he may have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.  He made a tough and accurate decision to turn back.  Tactical patience is as important when seizing the initiative as it is when keeping it.  It has been said that an army is most vulnerable at the moment of victory…this is largely true given the tendency to let your       guard down once you’ve ‘won’.
12. Have a plan to deal with the enemy’s most dangerous weapons like the war chariots.  Every weapon and tactic has a vulnerability, it is your job to find and exploit it.  At a minimum, avoid it.
13.   Remember that the decision cycle is not a single closed system.  It is repetitive and it interacts with the opponent’s decision cycle.
14.  Act, don’t react.  That’s how you get ‘inside’ the enemy decision cycle.  The tide has turned when the enemy is responding to you rather than the opposite.
