Transcript of Model Logic Model
Can be applied to:
a small program
a process (i.e. a team working together)
a large, multi-component program
or even to an organization or business
Dates to late 1960’s
yet are in widespread use:
Why so popular?
Focus on and be accountable for what matters – OUTCOMES
Provides common language
Makes assumptions EXPLICIT
Supports continuous improvement
Logic Models show a relationship:
Underlying a logic model is a series of ‘if-then’ relationships that express the program’s
theory of change
How will activities lead to desired outcomes?
Tutoring Program Example:
A series of if-then relationships
We invest time and money
We can provide tutoring 3 hrs/week for 1 school year to 50 children
Students struggling academically can be tutored
They will learn and improve their skills
They will get better grades
They will move to next grade level on time
“I think you should be more explicit here in Step Two.”
A logic model makes the connections EXPLICIT.
Often activities and strategies do not lead to the desired outcomes
‘if-then’ statements help to ensure you are working toward the outcomes you want to achieve.
Step 1: Define the Situation!
What issue/need exists that can addressed through a programmatic response?
does it exist?
does it exist?
has a stake in the problem?
can be changed?
Make sure you do the research!
Don’t simply assume you know the cause
If the issue is incorrectly understood and diagnosed, everything that flows from it will be wrong.
Outputs vs Outcomes
what we DO
So Why Bother??
“This seems like a lot of work.”
“I’m a right brain type of person – this isn’t for me.”
“Even if we created one, what would we do with it?”
Totally Worth It
Guides and helps focus work
Leads to improved planning and management
Increases intentionality and purpose
Is it meaningful?
Does it make sense?
Is it doable?
Can it be verified?
A depiction of a program showing what the program will do and what it is to accomplish.
A series of “if-then” relationships that, if implemented as intended, lead to the desired outcomes
The core of program planning and evaluation
An evaluation model or method
