How can you chart a path for your organization’s programs to achieve its goals? According to Claire Devine, Kristen Lacijan, and Roxanne Marsillo from the Providence Center for Outcomes Research and Education (CORE), a logic model is a great place to start.
A logic model provides a roadmap for the inputs and steps needed to reach your organization or program’s desired outcomes. It provides clarity and direction, ensuring staff, partners, and funders are aligned and working towards common goals. And while logic models can feel intimidating, many teams can benefit from taking time to clarify how specific activities will lead to your planned outcomes. In fact, the process of developing the model and talking through activities, outputs, and assumptions with staff, partners, and participants can be more valuable than the final product itself. That’s one reason we like to say that "logic models are a team sport!"
