Boydian 'book club' of sorts

I have been thinking about running some sort of reading club about Boyds briefings for some time now. And it was one of the first ideas for this blog.

My idea was to divide briefing at hand to bite size chunks and give people few days to read it and then publish our thoughts about it and then continue discussion about it in comments. Mainly about how would principles in each chunk apply to business.

Anyone interested? Suggestions on which briefing to start with? I was thinking about Organic Design for Command and Control.

I am trying to make sense of Destruction and Creation and am having trouble. Would be nice to start there

Definitely, let's do it. Any briefing's cool for me.

I've been more than a little busy last few weeks, so sorry for lack of updates! On the upside, I might get a chance to test some Boydian ideas in a business within couple of months. Will keep you informed of further developments.

Hmm.. Destruction and Creation is pretty heavy stuff. That's why I'd rather start with something, not necessarily easier, but atleast more approachable.

So I vote for either Organic Design for Command and Control or Strategic Game of ? and ?.

Thoughts?

So is this book club starting or not? If it is, I'd love to give some of these a second go!
