The Loop is the central concept that illustrates the design thinking process, particularly the act of continually refining and improving the development process and solution. The loop includes three stages: Observe, Reflect, and Make. We need to observe users to understand their problems, reflect on what we've learned, and then quickly make something to communicate potential solutions to sponsor users.
