Though I have appreciated the O365 Inner Loop vs. Outer Loop concept, I have felt there was something missing. How does a piece of information travel through these platforms, and how do these platforms rely on each other to realize their full potential.

 

I gave it another try. Here, for your consideration, is the Microsoft Collaboration Triangle.

An interesting idea and concept.

 

Interestingly, I presented a revised version of the Microsoft Loops diagram recently. The problem with MS's diagram is that is parsimoniously gives equal treatment to Teams, Yammer, and Outlook. But the real-world diagram is more like this:

I never liked the inner loop - outer loop concept ... I use this to show the different levels of activity held within a circular framework to give that looping round effect.
