    Step 1

    Balancing feedback loops are negative feedback loops and are circles of cause and effect that counter a change with a push in the opposite direction. The balancing loop attempts to move some current state to a desired state through action. This action is required to reach a goal. The balancing loop is a situation where there is a goal or an objective and action is taken to attain the goal. For example, if a firm has set the objective of increasing production by 10% it has created a balancing loop. The desired state in this example is 10% increase in production; this interacts with the current state to produce a gap. The gap is created by the difference between the ...
