Learning Loop Concept

A feedback loop focused on increasing learning. Generally follows these steps: make an assumption (or set a goal), build something (perform some activities), get feedback on what was built, and then use that feedback to inspect what was done relative to what was assumed.


Like following a recipe.

Single-loop learning is the process of evaluating successes and failures to produce different outcomes in the future. People that use this method define the actions that teams took and the results they yielded. With this, organizations can learn about how their decisions determine outcomes and how changing those decisions or outcomes can produce different results.


Like making a rocket.

Double-loop learning is a learning technique where people evaluate their assumptions along with their actions and results in a scenario. This helps organizations both understand the effects of their actions and what other factors might cause results or decisions. With double-loop learning, decision-makers in an organization can understand how policies, skills and other factors influence results so that they might make adjustments in the future.


Like raising a child.

Triple Loop Learning goes even deeper to explore our values and the reasons why we even have our systems, processes and desired results in the first place. It is about trying to ascertain an understanding of how we make decisions that frame our work.
