Logic Models display critical thinking and evidence.
Logic models have a sustained following because they are very useful in design, planning, managing and evaluation. Leading international development organizations and many other effective institutions employ them as a standard practice. Logic models vary in their reflection of a shared reality – depending on who builds them, how and when.
Logic models are both a tool and a process to display the mental model of what you are doing and expect to “get.” After all, experiments on paper are simple and easy – compared to the expense and effort of real-time implementation. Modeling offers a chance for multiple stakeholders to create. Generated with others, models reflect a valuable, participatory process. Stakeholders assure utility. Evidence contributes to quality.
A business partner and I wrote the seminal field text on logic models. It was a labor of love. It is used by Harvard University, Packard Foundation, as well as many others in the U.S. and around the globe.
Workshops, seminars, presentations, speaking on logic models are all possible!
