Definition of Feedback:

  1. The return of a fraction of the output signal from an amplifier, microphone, or other device to the input of the same device; sound distortion produced by this.

  2. The modification or control of a process or system by its results or effects, e.g., in a biochemical pathway or behavioral response.

  3. Process in which the effect or output of an action is returned (fed-back) to modify the next action. Feedback is essential to the working and survival of all regulatory mechanisms found throughout living and non-living nature, and in man-made systems such as education system and economy. As a two-way flow, feedback is inherent to all interactions, whether human-to-human, human-to-machine, or machine-to-machine. In an organizational context, feedback is the information sent to an entity (individual or a group) about its prior behavior so that the entity may adjust its current and future behavior to achieve the desired result. Feedback occurs when an environment reacts to an action or behavior. For example, customer feedback is the buyers reaction to a firms products and policies, and operational feedback is the internally generated information on a firms performance. Response to a stimuli (such as criticism or praise) is considered a feedback only if it brings about a change in the recipients behavior. See also homeostasis.

  4. Information about reactions to a product, a persons performance of a task, etc. which is used as a basis for improvement.
