A decision loop is a rearrangement of the Infogineering Model. Decision loops involve data, information, knowledge and actions in a feedback cycle.
Briefly, we use what we know to make decisions. Our decisions (actions) in turn change the world in some way (either data or information). We then turn this new data and information to update our knowledge of the world.
We can either change the world directly…
Or we can use our knowledge to create or update information resources…
Which is what information workers spend their time doing.
This is an endless cycle (until we die).
