Feedback Loop

A feedback loop occurs when some of the outputs of a cycle feed into the inputs of another cycle.

It can be a good idea to examine what starts the loop. To do so, look at Cause and Effect.

Usually, we want to build positive Feedback Loops and break negative ones.

Reinforcing feedback loops amplify the system’s output with each system cycle. Like compounding.

Balancing feedback loops dampen the system cycle’s output, which brings it to system equilibrium. Like a bouncing ball slowly bouncing less and less, until it finally stops.
