Boyd & Beyond is the third annual symposium dedicated to the study and discussion of the late Colonel John Boyd’s strategy, theory and ideas. The attendees come from a diverse set of industries and backgrounds.

In addition to sessions by those who knew Boyd there are presentations relating Boyd’s work to business, the brain, and of course insurgency and battle.


“People, ideas, hardware; in that order!”

—  John R. Boyd, COL, USAF, Ret. (1937-1997)
