A diagram and text that describes and illustrates the logical (causal) relationships among program elements and the problem to be solved, thus defining measurements of success.
A roadmap or a diagram showing chain results connecting activities to the expected initial outputs, and intermediate and final outcomes. It provides a basis for developing the performance measurement and evaluation strategies. ( www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/cmo_mfc/resources2/rmaf/RMAF05_e.asp)
A simplified chain of relationships that portrays the logic and assumptions underlying a program or intervention and how it intends to achieve its expected results. It states the logic of the program, identifies the assumptions on which it is based, and outlines the logical connections between (a) the activities undertaken, (b) the outputs to be produced, (c) the immediate or short-term outcomes that are expected, and 9d) the ultimate or long-term impacts the program is designed to achieve.
a diagram showing the logic or rationale underlying your program; it describes the links between program objectives, program activities, and expected program outcomes.
Describes how a program should work, presents the planned activities for the program, and focuses on anticipated outcomes. While logic models present a theory about the expected program outcome, they do not demonstrate whether the program caused the observed outcome. Diagrams or pictures that illustrate the logical relationship among key program elements through a sequence of "if-then" statements are often used when presenting logic models.
a flowchart or graphic display representing the logical connections between program activities and program goals.
A logic model is a diagrammatic representation of a theoretical framework. A logic model describes the logical linkages among program resources, conditions, strategies, short-term outcomes, and long-term impact. More information on how to develop logics models and examples can be found through the resources listed in Appendix G.
A framework that shows the relationship between the program's ultimate aim (its results) and the strategies and activities it is using to get there, along with how it will measure progress along the way. The logic model summarizes the key elements of your program, reveals the rationale behind your approach, articulates your intended outcomes and how they can be measured, and shows the cause-and-effect relationships between your program and its intended outcomes.
a commonly used tool for clarifying and depicting a program and its intended outcomes
a detailed flow chart of the theory of change that often includes, in addition to actions, people, setting, and outcomes, assumptions and external factors that may influence projected outcomes and processes
a flow diagram that establishes the links among the main components of the program, the implementation objectives, and the short and long outcome objectives
a graphic depiction of the program that you have developed or selected for your identified population
a graphic depiction of the relationship between a program's activities and its intended effects
a graphic depiction or map that shows the links between assumptions about the target group, program resources, activities, outputs and outcomes
a particular kind of action plan that specifies the inputs, activities, initial, intermediate, and intended outcomes that will accomplish the identified goal
a planning and evaluation tool that connects activities with desired outcomes and indicators of change
a systematic and visual depiction of how a program works, and a mechanism to help define metrics for performance, quality, and relevance of the program
a systematic and visual way to present and share your understanding of the relationships among the resources you have to operate your project, the activities you plan and the changes or results you hope to achieve
a tool that presents the conceptual framework for a proposed project and explains the linkages among program elements
a tool that turns the actions into results, so that evaluators and program managers can monitor progress and results
a top-level depiction the flow of materials and processes to produce the results desired by the organization or program
a visual representation of a program
A systematic and visual way to present the perceived relationships among the resources you have to operate the program, the activities you plan to do, and the changes or results you hope to achieve.
Tool used to visually describe the linkages between program goals, activities, and expected outcomes.
A graphic representation of the program “theory” or “action”. It consists of a logical chain of if-then relationships; if occurs, then will occur that shows the linkage from the activities through the sequence of outcomes
A logic model is a high level depiction the flow of resources and processes to produce the outcomes desired by the organization or program. The model can be very useful to organize planning and analysis when designing outcomes-based evaluations of programs.
A step-by-step approach for defining and measuring project activities and expected project outcomes.
(Modèle logique) An illustration of the results chain or how the activities of a policy, program or initiative are expected to lead to the achievement of the intended final outcomes. Usually displayed as a flow chart.
A diagram or chart that traces the flow from inputs to activities, outputs, and outcomes to demonstrate an aligned activity. A logic model employs an "if A, then B" way of thinking.
Sometimes called an input-output model (or occasionally a Log Frame model), a logic model is a systematic and visual way to show the relationships between the resources to operate a program, the activities done, and the changes or results achieved. A logic model typically includes columns for resources, activities, outputs, outcomes and goals.
A generic model of any business process, which breaks it down into inputs, activities (or processes), outputs, and outcomes (or results). Sometimes intermediate outcomes are also included.
