5.10: Section summary

This section illustrated various ways you can create a logic model. Remember – there is no one or correct way. We do recommend that if you are in a planning process, you consider starting with the end and working backwards. We hope you see how logic models can be used to improve your work.

  • There is no one or right way to draw a logic model; experiment – find the process that works bests for you and your group.
  • The recommended approach to planning a program is to “start” at the “end.”
  • A logic model is dynamic – change it as your program, the environment, or people change.
  • Much of the value of a logic model is in the process of creating it, checking it, and modifying it. This process is an iterative one that involves stakeholders working together to clarify underlying assumptions, expectations, and the conditions under which success is most likely.
