Logic Model

A logic model tells the story of your project or programme in a diagram and a few simple words. Logic Model Example

It shows a causal connection between the need you have identified, what you do and how this makes a difference for individuals and communities.

You can use logic modelling to plan a project or programme (as an “architectural” approach), or to examine and record ways in which a project or programme has produced outcomes after it has ended (as an “archaeological” approach).

The logic model reflects organisations’ particular contexts, purposes, circumstances and focuses of interest.  Therefore different organisations’ logic models will vary in focus and might look dissimilar.
